Aechmea chantinii

I find this is one of the more interesting species in Aechmea. It has prominent silver banding with green background for the leaves but takes to dark brown or almost black color in direct light. The inflorescence is a simple colorful multispike flower with colors range from brilliant red to sometimes pale orange depending on different cultivars.
