Stephen Haines ... "A couple of months ago a Mick Wilson of the Hunter Bromeliad Society brought this plant into a meeting.
Mick told me he crossed Guzmania wittmackii & Tillandsia deppeana and this is the result. He also said that this plant was about half the size of a plant that he has at home which hasn't flowered yet!!!
Very nice plant I thought !"
