When it arrived fresh without its “sprouts” I had it inside on the kitchen table. With time these strange growths have appeared, apparently some sort of flower, and its bright orange has now turned to a darker shade, but it is still alive. It is a plant that is making me curious to see what happens next. Eventually it will probably go to the happy bromelia hunting grounds, but is still bearing up. Perhaps it is a triffid in disguise and will eventually take over, who knows?
