I thought this was a Portea but now I'm not sure. Growing in filtered light. Large Bromeliad. VERY spiky edges.

Reminds me of Vriesea

Bromeliad (Alcantarea imperialis 'Rubra')

Well, cancel that ... I don't think Vriesea is one with toothed edges.

No - that's not it; I have that one too and this one has pointed, very spiky edges and longer leaves.
