I looked through all 55 pages of bromeliads and there are about 30 pages without any pictures.

Do you have a photo of the entire plant, showing the leaves? The bloom spike reminds me of Aechmea of some sort but I'm not really sure. Check out some of those in our database for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

Hopefully someone will recognize it and be able to point you in the direction of an exact ID.

I'm not a Brom expert by any means but it sure looks like Aechmea nudicaulis to me! If you post those photos over on the Bromeliad thread in the Tropicals forum, I bet someone will recognize it and be able to offer an exact ID: The thread "Bromeliads" in Tropicals forum

Lin, I agree with your ID. I recently saw A. Nudicaulis in flower and it looks like what I remember.

Scott, I thought it looked like that one but wasn't positive! Glad to have someone more familiar with Broms confirm the identity!
