Yeah it will sprout you just have to be careful not to overwater them.
bromelia pinguin is very similar and to be honest or kind of dangerous with some really wicked thorns on the edge of the leaves
And can be used to make a living fence / barrier .

I bought Bromelia karatas fruit on the side of the street when I was in Colombia. I collected a few seeds and brought them home (Germany). Three of them sprouted but a pidgeon ate two of the little plants and I only could save one. The plant is now 1,5 years old and I'm wondering if I will need a second plant to have the chance of it bearing fruit one day.

Do you guys know if it is self-fertile (I know normally only cultivated plants are)?
Is there male and female plants? Or is one plant both male and female?
