I wish I knew enough about broms to help, but maybe a couple of folks from the tropical forum may know. Let's give a shout out and see. I will post a link there also.

@Fred and @hawkarica both have huge collections.

Bromeliads can drastically change colors depending on the season and the amount of sunlight they are getting. This makes them difficult to identify accurately. It looks like the photo was taken outside on a chair but what are the regular growing conditions? Inside, outside, sun, shade, etc.
Minds are like parachutes; they work better when they are open.
