Brilliant Bromeliads

In the spring, a parent at school brought me some spare houseplants she had. In the mix were two bromeliads. We had not grown them before, so I was a little skeptical that they might go the way of African violets and orchids, which have not thrived in our home. Well, at the beginning of summer, they started really growing and changing and…..blooming!



Allow me to zoom in. I think this is an amazing bloom. The colors!! The radial form!


Wow! Is that not a show-stopper??
