Aechmea 'Fosters Favorite' is a wonderful hybrid by Mulford Foster. Interestingly this is the first ever Bromeliad hybrid to be patented in 15/11/1949. It is a hybrid between A. racinae and A. victoriana var discolor.
Aechmea 'Fosters Favorite' has wonderful dark red leaves and a pendulous flower spike with bright red/orange bracts and blue flowers. It does not like too much sun.
Here is one large size pup.
