An interesting an unusual cross of chlorophylla x fasciculata by Bill Timm. A colorful and robust hybrid with the foliage of the fasciculata parent, and an inflorescence heavily influenced by the chlorophylla parent. The resulting cross is much more robust and easy to care for than the chlolophylla which is a more mesic plant. This one is more xeric in nature and thrives in ‘normal’ Tillandsia culture.
The foliage is long and slender in a gracefully arching rosette shape and is silvery with trichomes. The inflorescence is a tall scape with ten or more glossy red branches and long bracts which are more leaf-like and grayish. The flowers are long and tubular, two-tone white and purple.
