It has been a while since I grew these when I lived in south Florida. I called mine Aechmea Fasciata Silver King and they make runners called pups that will start a new plant like Suzanne mentioned below. They are very pretty when in bloom. I had another variety that made an orange bloom but have forgotten it's name. I attempted to grow some after we moved to the mountains but the winter heat dried it out too much.

Beautiful ! I have one that I have had for many many years. After the flower dies a new plant will emerge. it takes a while but keep water in the urn part and feed it once in a while. They say the mother plant dies but mine stayed for a long long time. My plant has split into 4 already. I have had 4 flowers and waiting for a new plant to come out again. Suzanne.
