I think this is Pitcainiana or something similar. Need to confirm. Bloom spike is about 18 inches, leaves are slightly serrarated, has brown fuzzed seeds up the stalk and I have had it self set on moss covered concrete block and tree stump. Have failed to get seeds to grow otherwise.
Thanks

I have no idea which your Bromeliad is, but I love your little tropical paradise in that photo!

Thanks Porkpal, sometimes I wish I had kept it to a "little tropical paradise". If you want to check out my blog you will see that it gets a little overwhelming at times

Yes! Looks like a Pitcairnia Bromelaid to me.
