Intricate leaf banding

Thought of posting other bromeliads rather than Tillandsias. Let me introduce this Vriesea. It's a complex hybrid of fosteriana and heiroglyphica. What intersting about this plant is the intricate leaf patterns with much of tessalations running across each leaves. As a whole, it creates a hypnotising spiralling effect. Most of these hybrids are famous for their leaf patterns instead fo flowers.
