Tillandsia 'Creation' (?)

I acquired this as usual as an anonimous plant and now when flowering, it would look like the T. Creation, at least this is the most similar plant I could find between the FCBS photos.
What do you think about?

I am sure it is not T. cyanea, very common here. My plant is much bigger, reddish leave undersides, the inflorescence branched, less ellyptical.

You've got the real deal there Tomas. An exquisite plant. There was a post last year (Sept.?) here on your plant.

Tomas,no doubt in my mind its 'Creation'. Had one a few years ago. Its a 'creation' of Til.platyrhachis and Til.cyania, [see fcbs Til.#329]and is a subdued form of platyrhachis,which is a bit larger. Would be difficult to find a T.platyrhachis around,but 'Creation' is fairly available,and popular. Another nice inflorescence similar to Creation,is Til.wagneriana,a soft green leaved plant with an outstanding bloom.

I think 'Creation' is one of the greatest Tillandsias ever. I've seen specimens here with as many as 20 spikes on them! Fragrant, too.

Hi! I just barely saw this thread...

That is most surely a fine specimen of T. Creation. I'm working on getting a large one for my B-Day as I'm writing this! I also think it is one of the coolest looking Tillandsia hybrids. Being that T. platyrhachis are very expensive and hard to find, I think Creation is even BETTER because, it is a prolific multiplier after blooming, and the bloom shape/traits look nearly identical to the platyrhachis plant--and I hear the bloom stage lasts far longer. Can't WAIT to get mine!! ;-)
