Deuterocohnia scapigera ssp. sanctae-crucis
Deuterocohnia gableana

Deuterocohnia flowers can be bright yellow or yellow to orange and red.
Some have the flowers on stems that can be 3 or 4 feet in height and some do not. The flowers come from the center of the plant kind of like Cryptanthus (if it does have flowers on stems the stems are small and I can't tell). The plants with flower on stems can flower the next year on the same stem. Unlike alot of bromeliad's, Deuterocohnia do not die after flowering.
