Maybe a cultivar of Aechmea nudicaulis? You really need to see flowers.

From what I can see on those links A. nudicaulis seems to be growing more upright?This is a low growing, spread out plant.

It's difficult to tell from the top view, not sure if growing conditions would make it draw upwards, grown in a pot in dull conditions could do that.

v. aureorosea shows some likeness ..

Look at Neoregelia 'Hidden Dragon' ..

I think N. 'Hidden Dragon' is it. I recalled it had a name something like that - just couldn't remember the genus, but Neoregelia would fit it. Thank you Janet!! Thumbs up

It sure does look like a good match! They vary so much, but as you knew the name originally then I'm glad I found the name to refresh your memory.

I tip my hat to you.
