Blooming Bromeliads by Baensch
A great book but because this may be used as a reference book you should note the following.
page 50 Aechmea nudicaulis var aequalis A difficult variety to identify. Inflorescence too lax when compared to herbarium specimen
page 63 Aechmea pimenti-velosoi var glabra is ‘Pie’
page 65 Aechmea chlorophylla is lamarchei
page 65 Aechmea lamarchei is maculata
page 69 Aechmea “seideliana” is warasii
