Bromeliad for ID : Kenya : 05OCT16 : AK-5 : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)
This ornamental looks very close to Painted Fingernail Bromeliad, Neoregelia spectabilis.
But all the ones I found in my search have rounded leaves at the tip where as these had a pointed one.
Experts kindly advice.

Could this be Aechmea ampla?
