Bromelaids ... these are new to my collection

I was on a mission in Lowe's earlier and spotted these two plants.. I grabbed them for their colorful appearance, wishful thinking and hoping I wouldn't kill them. I'm not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination, either.
I know nothing about Bromelaids... I've seen plants similar to these growing out of the sides of trees.... and someone referred to them as Staghorns. Apparently, there are numerous varieties of Bromelaids, the most common being pineapple...

I'll keep you posted ...
