Sometimes it's good to have NOIDs in your garden because you don't know what is in store for you. You will wait and anticipate for the NOID to bloom since flowers, especially for the bromeliad family, usually determines the species. The long and exciting wait can either end up in frustration or pure joy. Frustration when the bloom turns out to be unremarkable or when the bloom confirms that you were duped by the seller. Pure joy when the bloom turns out to be spectacular or more than anything that you've ever expected like in this case.
