Pink Bromeliad Urn Plant #3

Pink Urn Plant Flower (bromeliad aechmea fasciata)

This is a photo of the flower as it just comes into sight. It's quite amazing how quickly these things grow. One day you see a tiny pink tip at the bottom of the "urn" or "pitcher", and the next thing you know you have something like this poking its head up.

This is actually my favorite of this set in terms of composition and I think it will print really nicely.
