> Unidentified bromeliad.
This is one of a type that produces tiny blooms in a pool of water that is captured (in the wild) at the top of the stem of leaves. Bromeliad growers must provide the water for such pools artificially.
I was drawn to the range of purple hues and the variety of textures in the subject.
