Aechmea fasciata

Aechmea fasciata
Aechmea fasciata is another Bromeliad, related to the plant whose flowers I posted a few days ago and related, too, to the Pineapple plant. These flowers are often sold as houseplants for their long-lasting and large pink flower spikes. The pink part, however, is not actually flowers, but the flowers are the tiny, short-lived blue "tubes" that appear between the pink bracts. This plant belongs to my son and was photographed in his house in Michigan.
