I have kind of nickname her Miss Franca for the colorful attitude.
Updated look 3 months later...

I have a Neo Syncopate that looks like it will finally bloom. I couldn't find any bloom pics of it anywhere. I imagine it won't be very thrilling, but the leaf color is nice and red now.

Glad to find new brom life in May!
And have somethin' important to say

Lyric for all the Bromeliad threads!

Been trying to think of creative way
For important message I want to say

Y'all share your tips, your pics, and your vision,
To help increase my Bromeliad wisdom!

You've planted in my heart a song
That I can sing all the day long!

A tiisket, A tasket, A tisket, A tasket,
Thanks for thumbs up and acorns in
my. basket! Smiling Thumbs up

I have been wanting to thank you all for the information and pictures you share, and for your generosity in sharing thumbs up and acorns!

Usually if I post a photo and
comment or question and send pic and lyric for Broms for Holidays, I have no creative neurons left for a unique thank you! I'm sure a simple thanks will do. You challenge me to
reach for more! Smiling

Here's pic of new brom life in May!

Cute TT. Not sure on ID, there are quite a few with red centers, doesn't look like tips are red, my guess would be N. carolinae.


I spent yesterday really cleaning out some bromeliads, this one has had this pretty flower for a bit, I think this is probably peak of the inflorescence. xCanmea GALAXY Albomarginata

Also look what I found underneath a bromeliad leaf, so be careful when trimming back plants if you have Monarch butterfly weed, I had six huge caterpillars all week, but all are somewhere in the garden now, like this one.

Sherri, thanks for acorn and ID ideas
Now I know it's a Neo. It never did have bloom. When I saw flowers they looked like ones in Scott's pic.
Does the Neo flower stay in the well, or vase, of the Bromeliad? Still working on "term"inology! Also, the upper leaves have more red color since I have it in more 🌞!

Scott, that is amazing growth on Franca for 3 months. You are surely the Brom whisperer.

Alice, I do not take the credit for the growth rate. I left it with the mother plant and cut out the mother a week ago. Franca is a fast grower and usually matures and flowers within 12-18 months.

Well, you have to take a bit of credit, I used to have a Franca and the only thing it did rapidly was keel over. Crying

Alice, sorry your Franca didn't live.
Scott, and y'all, make it look easy.
Though Scott is the brom whisperer!
Thanks for being honest (and funny)

My Earth Star mom finally gave up!
After giving birth to few lil pups.
Two are thriving in their own lil pots!
Two with mom look like pale lil dots!

Checked Earth Star. Mom is dried up
The 2 pups in pot with her are dry and pale. I gave them drinks! set pot in bird bath hoping they will survive!
I took the 2 potted separately outside in last week's rain. They appear to have revived. With our severe drought, I need to keep providing happy hour drinks! Smiling

I am excited to have my hands on this interesting variegated form of N. McWilliamsii. This is only a pup at this time with a 17" spread and will peak out around 30" when mature.

Spineless leaves for this large stolonifeious growing Neoregelia is a plus.

Got this off the sale flatbed trailer at Tropiflora a few years ago. One of the Darth Vaders maybe???

I also bought a labeled Miz Mollie on that same trip, labels are long gone but this may be her.
