Hohenbergia catingae #2 Palmires Bahia
A clone of this variable species that we collected near Palmeiras, in the state of Bahia, Brazil. It is a bottle shaped plant with stiff, gray-green, narrow leaves. The inflorescence is a pink spike with clusters of short, cottony branches. It grows in the caatinga habitat of rolling, rocky grasslands and thorn scrub with stony outcrops and is especially tough and sun tolerant. Growing hard, that is in bright light, reduced water and feeding and under-potting will force the plant to take on its best form and color.

Neoregelia 'Takizawa Princeps'
This stunner has been one of the most in-demand of RL Frasier’s hot concentrica hybrids. A cultivar of [(carolinae x concentrica) x ('King of Kings' x concentrica)] x johannis, it was named and registered several years ago, but few were ever released. A super plant in every way, wide leaved, huge growing, colorful, and with a great shape. It takes on a deep fuchsia-purple flush in bright light with some whitish and deep purple blotching. The variegation is a broad creamy-white stripe up the center of each leaf.
