I was wondering, it is said on literature and even some databases from collected botanical samples, that Catopsis berteroniana is a plant that lives in my country, even so, either I don't know how to recognize them, or the plant is quite rare. But I happen to have this curious bromeliad growing now since more than 3-5 years on my Dypsis lutescens palm tree, at the beggining it was just 1, and as years went by, it has multiplied, always after flowering, and both, the reproduction and the flowers resemble the way that C. bertenoniana does them, as new crowns around the base, and flower spikes similar to the ones of Catopsis I've seen on the internet. And more, recently I got some Catopsis plants that are said to be a clone from Venezuela, and the color they have seems similar to the one my plant has. So, in short, could my plant be Catopsis berteroniana, or at least another Catopsis?
My plant is really well nourished because all the flowers the palm tree makes end up in the water pocket it has
Found it online, this book is the guide to all the species in my country, this volume has Catopsis, as I had seen on the physical copy at the library there are several catopsis species here, but i don't really know how to either interpret the species key, or the botanical description of each of them?
