Have you got a gruberi ?

I was fascinated by Vriesea ospinae gruberi the first time I saw a picture of one, and I managed to get my first one a bit over a year ago. Since then I've decided to try to get hold of each different one I can put my hands on!

I love the overall effect these plants have - I love their detailed patterning, I love the way different clones give so many different variations on the same theme and I love the way they change through the year.

Just five in the collection so far, but increasing steadily. A few pics of mine below - it would be great to see pictures from everyone else!

Tiger? occasionally sold as Tiger Tim but seems to be a bit different in the flesh - stiffer, more upright leaves and more white, extending right out along leaves. Had to go halves with a mate to get this on eBay. It lives over at his place - I'm waiting desperately for a pup!

Looking forward to seeing your pics! Cheers, Paul
