Tillandsia bella
Peter Tristram 05/17
Peter Tristram ... "This is the delightful T. bella (in the aeranthos group), which has been discussed before (2010!). It is similar to another hailing from the Germans T. polzii, but more succulent and with larger floral bracts and petals (often labelled as such in European collections too). Such a variable group, the aeranthos mob! Apart from all of the variations we call aeranthos there are also winkleri and jonesii that have been split off and that we have here and a few others that most of us have never heard of (named by Strehl as well). Its a slow propagator unfortunately but might add interesting something to a hybrid, as Holm has shown."
