Very impressive Mike! 👍
Is that a Sincoregelia (formerly Orthophytum) ?

Aechmea 'Minuta' is showing great coloration as we start the New Year.

It looks like the pictures I have seen online for S. Galactic Warrior although the center might be a bit different. Shrug!

I have only seen photos of Galactic Warrior in flower online and they were of a lavender color. 🤔

Alice that link didn't work for me, I've had trouble seeing any photos on fcbs site, anyone else been having trouble?

I have
xNeophytum 'Ralph Davis' now x Sincoregelia 'Ralph Davis' it has white flowers, and looks like Mike's plant when in bloom.

I"ve have a RAT and it chewed off three of my Neo. Big Mac plants at the base, totaled two, but one I re-planted, hopefully it will survive. I have a pop up greenhouse and had some hybrid Tillandsias in it, they ripped them apart, they have also eaten many new offsets in my garden on my Neos. I'm beyond furious and this is WAR. I have set traps, so far I've caught two of them. I don't feed the birds anymore, since this has happened in the past, but I"ve never seen such destruction as they've caused this time. I had to remove all my Tillandsias from the greenhouse, most can take very cold temps, however I put them in my Florida room until I get this RAT problem under control. Grumbling

Thinking Strange, that does not work for me either now. I was thinking it might be Orthophytum mucugense or perhaps it is sincoregelia mucugense now.

Sorry about the rat issue. I have dealt with them in the past and it is frustrating.

Ever since they changed the website, I can't get anything, mostly a sad face or error page.

I have kept my eyes on this Aechmea Fasciata 'Primera' offset. Looking different from the mother plant and its two siblings. The red blush of color is interesting.

If you like the very small Neoregelia's the Neoregelia dungsiana x 'Midget' is a must have. This hybrid comes with a 4" leaf spread.

I recently found some Dragon Rock at a local pet store and thought they would look good with some bonsai that I was going to try. Then I received a ten pack of Tillandsia ionanthas, so I used some Dragon Rock to mount them. The small one to the left of the sloth is T. tricholepsis.

Jay, I have never heard of Dragon Rock but it sure looks good with those tillandsias. Thumbs up

Sherri, how is it possible that a neoregelia can look gorgeous and evil at the same time. Hilarious! N. 'pendula' has some nasty looking spines but the color is so clear and bright.
