It does look like a Vriesea Carinata to me, from the photo. I can't see the leaves very well. I would say it's either a Carinata or a Tiffany. Either way, congrats on the new bloom! I love when my Broms and Tillandsia bloom--especially my Tillandsia cyanea 'pink quill'. The flowers are so fragrant and attractive.

Thanks James. I've not heard of the Tiffany, I'll have to check that out. I don't as a rule grow many Broms. This was given to me a couple years ago, as a parting gift, and I'd been hoping to someday see the bloom. My passion/obsession has become Orchids, but this Brom may have me expanding my vision!

Thanks again, now I'm off to look at 'Tiffany'.
