Can anyone ID this compact bromeliad? These are only about 6" tall and propagate from offset runners (don't know if that's the correct term) extending from the base of the plant. For proportion, these three plants are growing on an 11" wide tree-fern raft.

I'll look at the tag on one of mine at home - this looks to be the same variety, but can't remember the name off the top of my head. It may be 'Donger' but I believe that one gets a little larger than this - up to 9"-10" wide. I'll check mine when I get home this evening.

Sorry, I looked at my plant last night, but forgot to come back and post. Apparently I didn't have a tag in my big hanging basket like I thought I did. The one I was thinking, though, was Neo. Variegated Fireball (or Fireball Variegated). It's a pretty common smaller sized neo that offsets regularly and quickly, and develops a nice dark pink flush in direct sun. Seems to get about 6"-8" high and wide.
