Unknown Tillandsia? II

tillandsiakyle(Z 10 Boca)August 6, 2009

Bought this today at a local nursery. They told me it was a Tillandsia from their farm in mexico, but they didn't know the species name. I thought maybe you guys (and girls) could help me out. P.S. for sizing, that's a 4" orchid pot.

Hey Kyle,

I'm pretty sure your plant is a Catopsis, and probably aff. morreniana - which I also grow. Catopsis are found in Mexico, and are members of the Tillandsioide sub-family. They grow epiphytically on thin branches.
Hope this helps.

Kerry

I completely agree, looked it up on FCBS, Catopsis morreniana. They got a few more I think I'm going to pick them up.
