Years ago we imported the first of this exciting sport from Brazil and had intended to release the first two offsets at the Bromeliad World Conference held in St. Petersburg. Just then a thief struck and took both offsets! These were the only ones ever to leave our nursery in the U.S. (a couple were since sent to New Zealand).
