Tillandsia 'Kaylan' (caputmedusae x baileyi) A cute hybrid with a nice mix of both parents. An easy grower, likes bright filtered light.
Tillandsia 'Key Largo'
An interesting hybrid of (capitata x extensa) by Steve Correale. Steve has been a fairly prolific hybridizer over the years but has registered few of his crosses. He does them to please himself, which is not such a bad thing, and doesn’t care much for naming them.
This plant has much more the look of the extensa parent, with long, narrow leaves and an excessively long inflorescence. Very long, pink and silver scape bracts and upright pink branches clustered at the top of the scape make it a showy plant. The foliage is dark reddish-brown but subtle, coated with silver trichomes that give it a pinkish tint. Easy to grow mounted.
Tillandsia 'Majestic' (chiapensis x concolor 'red Spiked form') cross by Mark Dimmitt. A beautiful plant with thick green foliage and long narrow cherry red spikes.
Tillandsia 'Mark Aldridge'
A cultivar of (baileyi x capitata Marron) by Bill Timm. The basic shape of the baileyi parent, but much larger and more robust. The capitata parent shows up mainly in the shape of the inflorescence which is a cluster of short branches in a tight head with long, leaf-like bracts. The color at anthesis depends on the degree of light and feeding, being pinkish to orange.
A hybrid of (fasciculata x concolor) by Steve Correale is the reverse cross of ‘Silver Sword’, larger and not as stiff leaved and having a branched rather than simple inflorescence.
A nice silvery, fasciculata-type plant with a three-branched inflorescence. The inflorescence is rather inflated with long, lanceolate branches, pink at the bottom, transitioning to green at the top. Really a nice looking plant.
Tillandsia 'Maya Red Cap'
A nice hybrid by Bill Timm, (Rio Hondo’ X capitata ‘Red’). A medium sized plant with greenish foliage and a red capitate inflorescence.
