This ornamental looks very close to Painted Fingernail Bromeliad, Neoregelia spectabilis.
But all the ones I found in my search have rounded leaves at the tip where as these had a pointed one.
Experts kindly advice.
Could this be Aechmea ampla?
The closest match i could find was Wittrockia superba.
Canistrum superbum could be the right name.
