|Yesterday I was invited to judge at the Bromeliad Show & Contest
in Baan Lae Suan Fair 2008, Bangkok THAILAND
This year seem to be success, as many new growers and participants
joined the contest with their beautiful Bromeliads.
The participants brought their broms in.
I was catagorizing the items.
|Some of beautiful Neo. ...sorry, please don't ask me the name LOL |
|Steph!!!! Brilliant.....again. |
Now the question is: What is that stunner (Ae) in the 2nd and 3rd pic with the 2 pups and black pot. zebrina?
Also what is that little tiger looking plant below the two pics of Neo Car tiger?
|Anyway, most of broms were Neo with a few of other genera |
An interesting container!
|Great plants! Thanks, Chanin. |
Ditto on the plant after the N. Car. Tiger...a stunning clone.
|Fabulous photos as always, Chanin! |
You should know by now that of course we are going to want the names..... ;-)
|Wow Chanin, amazing plants & great photos...who was champion of the show?|
|Hi Dennis (^_^)" |
That's Aechmea mulfordii cv 'Malva' and if you mean the 1st pic on the ground
it's Aech. zebrina
Now, we were judging.
Counting for "Best of Show"
And the prize go to this cute Neo. pauciflora
|Hi Philofan, Lisa and Devo...Sorry for Neo. names, I really have no idea, |
I'm a kind of Dyckia guy LOL
Again the winner pic.
|Thanks to this guy, my best friend, Gift who took a bunch of photo for me. |
|Thanks Steph! |
The Ae Samurai are also very well grown
|Hi All, |
I was also in this competition. I would help my brother Stephania to identifiy plants. ;-) Unfortunately some plants were mislebeled. It was the responsibility of the competitors. Somebody didn't know the name of their plants. That very difficult for me to identify. Plants grew in different conditions usually looked different.
The vareigated big one in 1# is N.johannis'De rolf'
The variegated one in 3# is N.Ying
The variegated one in 5# is N.(carolinae x concentricaX x Hannibal lector.
plants in 6# Left is Ae.Peach & Cream, middle is Ae.samurai, Right is Ae.Little Harv'Variegata'
Pic.8# in my brother's hand is N.Ninja.
|Thank You once again for taking us along with you! |
|This year brom. becomes popular in Thailand. Many growers sent plants to the competition. Hope brom. lovers in Thaiiland would be more and more. Now starting to the next identification. |

|Thank you for identification krub Khun Yong @(^_^)@ |
The only Dyckia in the show is Dyckia 'Keswick'
|Why do you enjoy torturing me?-lol. Just when I start to become impressed by the soucal broms..somebody in Florida tops that..then you wade in, and blow away all the others. |
If I counted right the Artichoke brom in pic. no.8(Ninja?)is not like any brom I have seen.
wow,What does it take to impress you?-lol.(okay,I do remember you liked my red tinged T.butzii!)
|Hi Stephania, Your photo report certainly lives up to your usual standard. It seems your country has the climate to not only produce good brom growers but good photographers as well and it certainly produces beautiful Neoregelias. As I have said before, you should get together with Lisa, Kerry and the other photographers on this forum and produce a book or a DVD. (Include also your friend who also took some of these pics for you). As well as being a record of your achievements, I'm sure you would find a ready market among the world's brom growers. |
"Fan-bloody-tastic" as usual, Thanks heaps. All the best, Nev.
|Thanks for the IDs, Yong! I thought I saw an old friend in there. ;-) |
As to the (carolinae x concentrica) x Hannibal Lecter, I did that same cross last year and so far none of my seedlings look anywhere near that good! Of course they're still young, but most of the variegated zonates I've seen have been the result of crossing back to the zonate at least one more time. The bands don't usually come through that strong in the first generation, so I'm wondering if that's really the complete parentage. Gorgeous plant, at any rate!
|WoW Stephania, |
Am speechless- too good too be true! Must time a visit to Thailand with one of these shows. Love everything, dying of envy. Thanks for the drool fest!
|I have 3 forms of (carolinae x concentrica) x Hannibal Lecter. I labelled them Dark, Light and red clones.Since they haven't been named as yet. Its a nice plant|
|Thanks heaps Chanin! - and cute Gift as well :) |
As J+A wrote, they seem almost too good to be true. I have never seen such beautifully-formed neos as you grow them in Thailand. I noticed many are growing in quite large pots, so I assume their roots are fed quite well, along with good strong light, humidity, and plenty of TLC. Are they also foliar-fed?
Nev - thanks for the compliments and repeated suggestion of a collaborated book/dvd. The logistics of us getting together would make that difficult, even if time allowed. But you never know - individual efforts might be in the pipeline...
Chanin - any further developments on a world brom conference being held in Thailand? (oh please, please?)
Phenomenal photos as usual! I don't envy the job that you had as a judge....so many fantastic plants to choose from!
Thanks to Yong for helping put names with some of the plants, too!
|Thank you all my brom friends (^_*) |
Kerry, as I know they do prefer 'diet' their Neo plants to keep a perfect form.
For the WBC in Thailand, I do hope too, but it's up to the organizer now
and also Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden seem to take their time!
|Hi All friends, |
Thanks for all participation. Tropical climate in Thailand is very suitable to grow plants. Broms. grow properly and do not flower when they're still young. That is quite good for them. Normally, they can grow to very large size and show up their beauty, colors and forms, as you see in those pics.
WOW! HDD, you have 3 from of (carolinae x concentrica) x Hannibal Lecter. This plant is the one I love but still don't have one. I like those banded on variegated leaf. I'm still looking for. HDD, Let's show those 3 forms.
For WBC, I know that Nong Nooch Tropical Garden is now preparing to be the host. He spend lots of money to creat new Broms. garden. Hope he will succeed in the mission. WOW WBC in Thailand, It's my dream that will come true.
|Wow! Chanin |
Thanks for sharing! Is the show held every year in Oct?
May be you could post a calendar of all the plant shows in Thailand. Any idea what is the theme in your King's BD show in Dec? Will these brom experts be there?
|Hi Lyndi, yes normally Baan Lae Suan (Home and Garden) Fair will be held |
near the end of Oct every years.
the Suan Luang Rama 9 Ornamental Plant Show that will be held on Dec.
never had brom show yet, may be we will put the show up there next year.
|Holy cow (sorry, Midwestern roots coming out)! What a collection of spectacular broms! All of those neos are fantastic. Was it tough to judge them or was it easier in person than what we can see from the photos?|
|Hi Sdandy, yes it was, we had to check up on any imperfections, |
such as scar, insect... then selected 3 candidates for the 1st.2nd or3rd prize.
|Hehe.... nicely put, Sander. Is that your California surfer roots coming out? ;-) |
HDD, I want to see pics of your 3 (cxc) x HL clones too. Why not start a new thread?
|Hey guys I will post pictures as soon as I can. We finally have repair crews here to fix what hurricane IKE destroyed and its full blown crazy everyday here.|
|Chanin, thanks very much for showing us again the beautiful plants grown in Thailand! Spectacular!!! |
When you say the plants are put on a diet, do you mean they get no food at all? Or do they start the plants off with some food and then never again, or do they still get the occasional light foliar feed?
The form of most of the Neo's is simply to die for! Such perfect symmetry!
|Hi Sander & Japie (^_*) |
I've heard that they tend to start the plants off with some food and then never again.
|Amazing. i just got sent this link and I about hit the floor. Thank you so much for all the awsome pictures. Now I wnat Broms! Brandy|
