Its been some time since I have posted, but i have been reading quit a bit. I just noticed my broom is starting to bloom, finally! i have had it for just over a year and im using two 30watt repti-glo 2.0 lights.
Looks awesome! What species is that? It looks much like a vriesea judging by the inflorescence. I had a brom bloom for me as well. A neoregelia 'mosquito' bloomed not long ago and managed to push up 4-5 flowers before the dang millipedes got to the buds and began feasting on them. It still has bud spikes in the center, but I don't think it is going to put off any more flowers. They were a vry pretty purple though!
