    Talking Bromeliad in Bloom

    I put some Bromeliads in the backyard a couple years ago. A friend had given me a pot completely overgrown with this kind. I put them in and waited and waited for some flowers. To my suprise the other day, this beauty had popped up.
    Hope they do this again soon!

    This is such a pretty, showy bloom and I really like the 3rd picture you took from above.

    Beautiful, Connie!

    But, alas! Unless that pot has some as of yet unbloomed matured growths, it will likely be a while til you get blooms again. Each plant blooms but once. Afterwards the 'mother' plant puts out one or more 'pups'. Depending on the type, years can go by before they mature enough to bloom
