What is this plant?

Hey all,

First time posting.

I bought this plant the other day but I can't figure out what it is. I am hoping someone can help tell me what it is and how best to look after it.

Thanks all.

    I think it's a Quill Bromeliad.
    I don't know much about them....

    But found this article
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Hey, there is definitely a photo there on my screen. I'll post it again just incase.

    I can see it. It’s a type of bromeliad ... think it’s Vriesea splendens.

  • Ah yes Pete.8 its a Quill Bromeliad or a Pink Quill for short.

    Thanks so much.
