Blooming Friday Bromeliad flowers

My Guzmania has flowered three years after I bought it! I hope it will become deep red as the nurseryman said.
This bromeliad, which we call Nail-polish plant has also started flowering.

The Pyramid bromeliad has no season, it follows its inclination.


The Matchstick plant is a bromeliad with curious flowers.



This Billbergia nutans has pretty pink bracts. The flowers are blue and green.

  8. Lovely flowers. I have a Billbergia too - I've always like that pink and blue combination so the Matchstick plant is a hit as well!

  9. Dear Friends, thanks for stopping by and writing interesting comments. I can't answer individually, as I have caught a flu.

  11. Oh Lotusleaf, I do hope you are feeling better now! Your bromedliads are wonderful! We used to have the matchstick one, when it bloomed we thought it looked like something from outer space, but matchstick is a much better idea for it. Do get well soon. :-)
