Aechmea 'Vaquero' Is a hybrid of A. maculata Red Form x pineliana var minuta by Grant Groves of Florida. I love the name Vaquero, it is the Spanish name for a horse mounted catle herder, or Cowboy.

A discription from a Tropiflora catalogue of 2010 says..  “A stunning, compact cross that keeps a tight, upright, tubular shape. The leaves are stiff, with rather large spines, and boldly cross banded with red bars. The corn-cob shaped inflorescence has yellow flowers and a scape with showy red bracts.”

Care for Aechmeas can be be the same as for Neoreglia and Billbergia etc. They can also be mounted.

I have a few nice large plants available.
