Queen Tears Plant

My aunt gave me a plant a while back so I put it in the sun room. Recently, a red stalk has appeared that will form blooms. This plant is watered by pouring water into the center of leaves that form a conical cup. The first picture was taken about 4 days before the next one.

[EDITED: Okay, I need to do my research before posting. It appears this plant is a Billbergia nutans or "Queen Tears". The pictures I am finding on the internet look very much like this plant.]

A picture taken minutes ago from when this post was written shows a multicolor blooms forming. I wonder if they will open?
