I just came across with this pic while I was searching on Bromelia pic.
It was taken somewhere in Brazil, I wonder if it's a bromeliad or not ?
I've never seen that type of spine before :?

Here the link to the photographer who has a really great port folio.

I would like to meet new friends in other part of the world and would be glad to trade plants or seed from this part of the world.

this spec. can not be a bromelia because there are 2 Spikes on same place on the leave.
it must be a cactus or a agavaceae :) :) :)

Hi Chanin,

I agree in Joachims doubts,
maybe it is some sort of Yucca or Dasylirion ?

Greetings Timm

Thanks Joachim & Timm :lol:

I just got the answer from two expert an hour ago : Walter Till and Dutch Vandervort
that this mysterious plant should be a species of Eryngium (Umbelliferae = Apiaceae), a dicot plant.

Ohhh...thank you god, for not a brom :roll:
because I prefer to die for to get one of that kind of spikey!

Funny, when I was in Chile for the first time I got fooled as well. That time by Eryngium agavifolium, which is very common and sometimes really bromeliad-like. Nice plants, but very unfriendly spines.

Cheers,
Joachim
