    Such beautiful flowers. I enjoyed others who have them joining in with photos of theirs as well(and the pineapple). Such a beautiful and delicate looking flower. Thank you for sharing.

    They are lovely. A friend of mine gave me one last year and the pot is already filled with "pups" (the little ones).

    I love them. Had several planted outside at previous house and they bloomed constantly from May through October. Never had any luck getting them to bloom inside.

    Beautiful! Maybe it is the heat that brought it out.

    Blossom - Thank you for the tips on growing these plants. I see you live in Hawaii where you can grow them outside. When I lived in Florida some of my neighbors had them in various colors and I admired them. Maybe I can nurture these to bloom again indoors.

    Beautiful!! I have that one outside my sewing room. Yes, they only bloom once, then die, but they put out a new pup. I buy them on the clearance rack at Home Depot when the bloom dies. Nobody wants them, but I know what to expect, so they are a bargain.

    The bromeliads need lots and lots of sun. The old plant will only bloom one time but the new babies are the next to bloom but ony once. I was instructed to keep the center of the plants full of water and use regular plant food. I feed mine when feeding my african violets. They are so beautiful and the bloom on mine last's a long time. I keep mine in the house in an east window in the winter but put it outside when the weather warms up.

    Isn't nature wonderful. The colours are just right for a quilt. Well done for your achievement. I was given a Vanda Orchid by daughter at her wedding and it has bloomed several times. It's such a joy to when it happens and evocks fond thoughts of the person who gifted it to you. My grandson calls them Nan'a Awkwards :lol:
