I went to a bromeliad sale last December and fell in love with Neophytum "Burgundy Hill". Neophytum are intergeneric hybrids of Neoregelia and Orthophytum. I also found a lime green Orthophytum but its delicate leaves break easily. I kept my eyes open and have since acquired a green and a variegated Neophytum, as well as a small Burgundy Hill. Here is a group portrait.
