Unknown Tillandsia

avane_gwOctober 28, 2008

Some time ago I got a small twig that was covered with tillandsia seedlings from some one. Knowing they take quite a long time to develop into mature plants, I fastened the twig on the log where a lot of my tills are mounted and forgot about them except for the occasional glance every now and then. The other day when I looked at them, it seemed that they flowered! And I did not even see one flower! Anybody got an idea what they are?

Japie, it looks to be T. mollis. Quite the slowpoke and not too often found. Very nice. The second choice would be T. funebris but I doubt it.

Hi Japie could it be Tillandsia capillaris.
Seems very similar to mine labelled as above.

Cheers Richard
