A cultivar of chiapensis x xerographica by John Arden. One of the most dramatic of all Tillandsia hybrids not only for its size but its form and color. Growing in a widely spreading open rosette to over 24 inches across, with gracefully arching, silvery leaves of heavy substance. The inflorescence is tall with up to ten or so thick branches starting just above the rosette. The rachis is glabrous, dark pink and the branches are pink at the base, turning green towards the tips and dusted with silvery trichomes. Very long lasting in color. No known cultural problems, but it is a slow grower.
