Tillandsia Califano
baileyi x ionantha, Foster, 1965.
From BCR ... "Tropiflora said, "A miniature w/short 3" leaves in an upright somewhat bottle shaped rosette - the inflorescence is a short simple scape w/purple flowers and a reddish blush - also occurs naturally in northern Mexico"."
Ed. ... "The photos below may actually be 'Califano Too' which has longer arching leaves than 'Califano'. See notes under 'Califano Too'."

Ray Clark ... "this one purchased in 2011 at a BSSA sale from our dearly departed mate George Rudolph. Not to be confused with T. califani."
