    Cool!

    I used to have one of those, long time ago--love the pink flowers on them! Never knew what it was called.

    Needs redoing, huh?

    Wow! See, I love these ones but they grow and grow and next thing you know you're out of house and home... some friends of mine bought one and now they have so many they were forced to move to Hong Kong... when offerred to take them on I said "no way!"

    (ok so maybe they moved because of work)

    Of course, maybe I can get one seeing as my pups will probably not try to eat it like they did last night to with my Frangipani!

    Hmm, decisions decisions... well, maybe a small division...

    Cheers

    Those are really nice, love the pink flowers too. But its usually their size that make me just admire them at the shop and then move on and go look for something smaller. I did had an Aechmea gamosepala before. Not too big but it got infected with scales so I tossed it out.
