Strange happenings with Aechmea gamosepala

From Luiz Filipe Varella of Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul - Brasil who writes.

Hello friends of FCBS.

I'm a brazilian bromeliad lover and I had these two strange aechmea gamosepala flowerings this year. One of them had two flowers and the other had a strange divided extremity.

Are these kinds of flowerings usual for that kind of bromeliad? I've never seen it before in my a.gamosepalas and i've been cultivating them for five years.

The one with two flowerings is still growing and i'm taking other pictures of it.
