I'm not sure how that can be, but it's true! Neoregelia.

I love this Neoregelia pink! These are lovely specimens @purpleinopp!
My Tilandsia cyanea is the only houseplant I have at this time with a pink tint.
I'd love some pink colored specimens myself. I have an obsession with Coleus and Begonias these days, as well as Cordylines (and I know those are all demanding plants). Crying

I think you will get along fine with Begonias, Coleus & Cordyline. They are at the top of my list of plants that are easy to get along with.

I'm surprised the Neoregelia is so bright at this time of year.
I have two of the red/pink Aglaonemas from big box. One bought on clearance has struggled on and off for a couple years.The other bought at full price was gorgeous until my daughter "loved it too much". That one is just now looking halfway decent. Ags in general are soooooo slooowwwww growing, if they suffer it takes a long time to look good again. Never tried Fittonia (nerve plant) or polka dot plant. They strike me as sort of wimpy looking, not my faves.

True @sallyg, fittonias are difficult to maintain IMO. After a couple of months usually they begin to wither. I find Polka dot plants easier to maintain, they do become leggy after a few months so I prune them down, then they look uglier for a while until they have new growth.
My Polka dots.

I wish I could find the red/pink Aglaonemas over here Sally! I have told the owner of my local nursery to look for some for me, but I have yet to receive any good news. Some plants are surprisingly difficult to find. I mean, an Aglaonema, I would think it should be easy to find. The opposite, I have also been looking for an Aspidistra for ages. Confused

My favorite pink foliage is the Ti plant Cordyline fruticosa Pink Pepper, which I saw growing in the conservatory of Longwood Gardens over the 2016-17 winter. I was smitten and would love to have something like this as a houseplant, but I am uncertain whether a Cordyline like this is likely to succeed indoors on my windowsill in southcentral Pennsylvania (zone 6b). Cordyline growers seem to live in warm zones and grow them outside.

Tiffany, What is the leaf spread size on your Neoregelia? Neo. 'Nemo' and 'Donger' are reminiscent of each other with 'Donger' coming in with only a 5" leaf spread.

At times when I look at the gorgeous young leaves on variegated rubber plant, they seem pink, other times they just seem red, depends on the quality of the light @ the moment I guess. (Ficus elastica.)
