A natural hybrid of (caputmedusae x limbata) from Guatemala. At about 12 to 18 inches, it is larger than caputmedusae but smaller than limbata. It has fairly wide, long and tapering silvery leaves that curl at the tips. A slightly bulbous base and upright growth, eventually producing a lovely red inflorescence that rises above the foliage with an upright cluster of branches. Quite attractive and long lasting in bloom. Does great mounted and will form clusters of plants.
This moderately large Tillandsia has gracefully arching foliage, a semi-bulbous base, an attention-grabbing infloresence and the whole is velvet-like. Grown to perfection by Tropiflora. I'm very happy with it and wish I had acquired one previously. This robust plant should become a grand clump in a couple of seasons.
