Looks good!

The brom on the left is vriesia splendens (which I think gets pretty big) and the other one is another vriesia species, but I don't know what...

Hopefully Antone will chime in on this!

thanks, if it helps i have better pictures of the other brom, also am i right in thinking that once they flower like they have that they stop growing.. also how do they manage to dwarf bromiliads.. i know that lacking in nutriants can result in a dwarfing of plants.. but that causes discoloration also most of the time.. and i know that some hormones like gibberlin can cause plants to grow to remarkable sizes.. are there hormones that dwarf plants like bromiliads?

thanks

Nice work. Chris had it right on the ID of the bromeliads. The one on the right is definately some sort of Vriesea. The left is V. splendens.

They use a gas that forces the plant to bloom early. This tricks people into thinking thats as big as the plant gets as when it pups, the pups will grow to full size. Don't get me wrong though, there are smaller hybrids and species out there.

You may be able to force the pups by placing a ripe apple in the viv. I believe that the gas is ethylene and that ripe apples release it.

As far as I know, its best done in a sealed container and it takes at least 3 weeks. Can you imagine the smell? :lol:
