What a gorgeous thing it is!
Bromeliads live best in trees-- that is where they grow naturally, in jungles of S. America. Of course, we've put them in pots! They need a little water in the flower cup to keep them happy and with the right amount of light and after a prolonged growth on some like this one, you will have a beautiful bloom.
Ed told me last night that he's been thinking and decided he should buy me a better camera now and not wait 'til Christmas, so that I can get better pictures of my flowers. Yeaaaa!
