We all know the amount of sunlight your Bromeliad receives dictates the color potential. When I purchased my little Neoregelia 'Rosy Morn' pup some years ago I was told to have fun with it.
After my original plant multiplied the last few years I had the fun of testing the different looks of 'Rosy Morn'.
Here is a example of 3 now in the mature stages of life grown in 3 different lighting conditions.

Nice example, they look good together, like a stoplight.

Scot, that is really amazing, what beautiful colors! You should upload that photo to the database because it really is a great example showing all the possible coloration's!

Stoplight, Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! They look so healthy Scott, you really take good care of your plants. You must not have deer like I do, so many of mine are partially chewed. Grumbling . I am slowly moving them to the back yard which is fenced.

Scott must not have trees (acorns, sticks, leaves, etc), squirrels, deer, rabbits, rats, Lubber grasshoppers, a big dog that likes to chase lizards, strong wind, freezing temps, because all his plants look so pristine. Hilarious!
