Not fully in bloom yet, but still putting on a nice display. I'll post some more pictures when the little purple flowers bloom, what you see here is just the bracts. I grow these front and back in variable lighting.

The bracts are very colorful, it should be interesting contrast with the purple flowers.

Beautiful pictures of this tropical plant. Some grow it as a houseplant here in Denmark, but most often we see Aechmea Fasciata - the silver vase.
