Unusual Aechmea Fasciata Bromeliad

This arrangement with both an Orchid and a Bromeliad really looks great.  The pink bromeliad is an Aechmea Fasciata, which you do not see much of anymore.  They used to be popular, but they had spines on the edges of the bracts, and it was easy to get cut when caring for the plant and they went out of style.  Now this new variation is spineless, making them easy to handle.  Don't be surprised if they come back in style again, especially with this improvement.  Adding fullness to the the arrangement is a Neanthe Bella Palm.
