Check out this odd looking plant from the bromeliad family. It’s native to South America.
This species, bromelia balasae, is closely related and looks very similar to the pineapple plant.
It doesn’t seem to be a very common ornamental plant though in Central Florida, which is why it caught my eye one day during one of my morning walks.
