Neoregelia 'Wild Tiger' x zonata clone #1
A hybrid by Michael Kiehl. Both parents are nicely banded, reddish over green, this plant though has shown more of a tendency towards red mottling over green. Once hardened off, it takes on brighter colors, becoming yellowish with red markings.
Alcantarea imperialis 'Red'
A giant of the bromeliad world, sometimes reaching over five feet high with leaves over eight inches wide, in full rosettes. Gardens of these giants are still found on bare granite slopes in the mountains near Rio de Janeiro where they grow in full sun. Bright light in cultivation brings out a reddish cast in the foliage. Suitable for landscape in warm locations or makes a spectacular potted specimen. Of the many forms of imperialis around these days, this one is considered the 'typical' form, and still the most popular.

Forzzaea leopoldo-horstii SEL1992-0080
A species formerly in the genus Cryptanthus that could easily be taken as an Orthophytum or perhaps even a Dyckia in its foliar aspect. Native to Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil where it grows an arid existence. The leaves are stiff, succulent, and straight, about a half inch wide at the base and tapering to a point, bearing small, but stiff marginal spines. The color is silvery due to a heavy coat of trichomes. Flowers are white. Our clone of this plant originated with Prof. Dr. Werner Rauh and also carries the Selby accession number of SEL 1992-0080.
