Neoregelia Rosea Striata
Cultivar of farinosa, Seidel(DeLeon).
Described in the BSI register as "dusty pink centre AND red lines on leaves".
Previously linked as a variety of carolinea, but reference to carolinea or farinosa is best avoided.
Another plant often sold as "Rosea Striata" may in fact be Neoregelia "Red Lines", it's centre is not such a "dusty pink" colour.
See fcbs reference photos and "Uncle Derek Says" article.
