Tillandsia lindenii

I have had this plant for around 4 years, and have divided it a few times. This year, one has flowered quite peculiarly! I think it is a double(or more)flower? Does this happen often?

Normal flower

not normal flower
Tillandsia lindenii

Is this something I can hope to expect on any offsets this one may produce? Or do you think it might be a one-of? I am quite liking the effect.

Hi BA,

That looks pretty spectacular, does it have a perfume like Cyanea and if so, is the perfume on the double flower any stronger than a single flower?

I know, questions, questions, questions, but then I am only a boy (old) and still learning.

All the best, Nev.

Wait until all the flowers open. It may be just an anomaly.

RE: Tillandsia lindenii

Its had 3 blooms the same so far, and it always smells of cloves in the general area, but then I have another pot with two flower spikes (normal) It is so warm in there, and bright and the smell is sensational. I shall have another sniff tomorrow and see if I can detect any difference, although I suspect that once I sniff one, my nose won't work as well when I sniff the next.
Thanks PB for the Email. I had seen Neo flower abnormalities in this forum once before I think, and I'm pretty sure you showed me some the last visit? Anyone got Tills or other doing strange things? What about Bills? Do they throw double flowers? Wouldn't that be something?
