Tillandsia Tooshi
schiedeana x (schiedeana x juncea) Rolly Reilly, Brisbane.
34. 35. T. Tooshi

From Detective Derek schiedeana article DD0912....
"Its parents are said to be schiedeana x (schiedeana x juncea) in other words two schiedeana - Cough Cough – to one juncea. Even so the plant has more erect stiffer leaves than the quickly spreading horizontal leaves of what I think are ‘true’ T. schiedeana. Any doubts you may have are dispelled when you see the bicoloured petals! The parent (schiedeana x juncea) must have also been around but was never registered and could well have links with Maurice’s ‘Scurfy’. We are also talking about seed batches not offsets so you would expect variability.
