Here is a plant about which we knew little. A medium sized species (apparently) reaching about 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide that was collected by Harry Luther on a 1993 trip to Mexico. Harry, along with Bill Baker, Wayne Schuster and others collected along the Mexican west coast and found this plant in the state of Sinaloa. We had not seen this plant bloom and I suspected that Harry did not either as he never put a name on the plant.
The most remarkable thing about it though is that it is quite gray or silvery with a heavy coat of trichomes, looking much like a Puya instead of a Bromelia. This characteristic is rather rare in the genus Bromelia. It is quite an attractive plant.
