Three Tillandsia coming into flower now.

Tillandsia stricta

Tillandsia tenuifolia

Tillandsia ?

Any ideas as to the ID of this last one?

Excellent photos devo!
I'd say your unknown is T. 'Nez Misso', supposedly a cross between aeranthos and bergeri. See the article under "Uncle Derek" on the FCBS.

Nice, Andrew!
Your T. tenuifolia has much longer flower heads than mine ever get. Do you feed yours? And would that make much difference to the flower size?

Thanks Gonzer & Kerry,

Kerry, I'm not 100% sure my Till tenuifolia is in fact tenuifolia...it maybe var strobiliformis, as the FCBS photo looks similar, or it maybe a hybrid. Whatever it is, it grows well here without any feeding, just left to do its thing.
