New additions to my brom family

The three bromeliads that I ordered from Australia arrived today. What a joy to have these new additions to my plant family! They are:
Neoregelia predator

Vriesea kiwi-sunset

Vriesea herioglyphica

And a group shot.

Tada... tada... my brom collection is the "best" in the city, so far! (Or is it?)

Yes of course! I have never seen these even here. Good choice Ha Xuan! These need shade right? I like all three :-D

Hà Xuân said...

Thanks, Steph. Broms cannot tolerate full sun but not total shade, either. They likes dappled sun.

You have no idea how incredibly jealous of you I am right now.

Hà Xuân said...

Mr Subjective, why so? Can't you grow broms?
I've found them quite agreeable to my climate. The only hindrance is... they're terribly hard to get here, both $-wise and availability.

mr_subjunctive said...

No, I can and do grow them (indoors, of course). But I've never seen 'Predator' or 'Kiwi Sunset' around here, and I haven't seen Vriesea hieroglyphica in ages.

Other bromeliads have been available to me before, of course. And when they are, I've bought a lot of them. (Though they tend to be pricey here too.) But those three of yours are amazing.

Oh, I see. So I'm very lucky to have an acquaintance got this for me from Australia. Wish I could share with you a baby when these multiply!
