...(badda boom)...that was my husband speaking; we had just walked into the Bromeliad wing at the Conservatory in Volunteer Park in Seattle. Previously we visited the amazing desert garden, today I’m, taking you to the west end which is all about the Bromeliads, so many bromeliads in fact that it’s a jungle in there and it was nearly to impossible to find the tags to record the names, thus a lot of this post is just pretty pictures with very little information, Bromeliad porn if you will. We’ll start with this Epiphyllum darahii (since this one was hanging it was easy to see the tag). And move on to the unnamed, although I suspect this might be a Quesnelia arvensis?
Don't you just love how "ant plants" sounds? Although the thought of ants inside the plant is kind of creepy.
Dyckia 'Lad Cutak'
Look at the edge of these leaves...this is a close up of the plant in the center of the picture above.
