Tillandsia Scion
ionantha ? x schatzlii natural hybrid ?
From BCR ... "An alleged natural hybrid but with no provenance. Called loosely 'Red schatzlii' Note added 3/2015. Thanks to advice from Pam Hyatt, we note there is great similarity to 'Edmund Campeon' (schatzlii x brachycaulos) and could well have been imported to Australia from the USA. Note added 6/2015: Pam Hyatt suggests that the putative seed parent T. ionantha seems unlikely.."

Steve Molnar ... "This one was from Chris Larson, and am very happy it is in my collection. Fantastic colour in the inflorescence, and great overall shape."
