Tillandsia haul from abroad

I was very fortunate to find a source who has some very scarce species to trade which include newly described plants. This first half of my order includes T. aizoides, brealitoensis, burle-marxii, castellanii, chuscongensis, landbeckii and pedicellata. A bonus was that most have seed pods and newly sprouted seedlings. These are small for easier (!) shipping. More goodies next week.

Great haul, Gonzer! Thanks for the intro.

I've never heard of those ones. I assume they are from the country of their habitat, considering many are newly described?

Looking forward to seeing the next lot of newbies, as well as close ups of their flowers when next that happens. Good luck with growing on the new seedlings.

Cheers,
K

Nice looking Tills. I like brealitoensis, burle-marxii and castellanii in particular, though they're all very interesting. I like miniatures. I have bryoides, but just a teensy bit of it and it's not doing that well for me.
