Because you are all great at ID's over here, I was wondering if you knew the names to #1 and #2 tillandsia and #3 billbergia. The billbergia has a dark green leaf with a dark purple center.


Here is a link that might be useful: Fla forum

#1 is T. streptophylla, #2 is T. capitata. I know #3 but my brain's pooped.

Please gonzer, rest your brain.;)
Nev said Bil. Sanderiana for #3.
Thank-you both. I love buying unusual broms at Searle's twice a year sale, but few come with name tags.

coffee, I've heard from quite a few happy campers about the Searle's sales. A lot of quality stuff originates there. Originally I thought #3 was sanderiana but the flower bracts don't seem large enough.

I agree, gonz, it's not straight B. sanderiana (bracts too small and not pendant enough, foliage too purple), but definitely a sanderiana hybrid. Maybe Violetta?
