|Aechmea fasciata belongs to the bromeliad family (pineapple also belongs here). Its common name is Silver-Vase or Urk plant. It is an epiphytic plant originated from Brazil. The leaves form a vase-like rosette of leaves showing silvery-grey bands. Water can collect in the centre of the rosette. The flowers arise from a central cluster of rosy pink bracts. The flowers change from blue to deep rose. These features are very well shown in this photo.|
