Tillandsia brenneri

Peter Tristram 08/12.
Peter Tristram..."I had been in a quest for this for over 20 years until I finally got it again, from 3 sources eventually, Kents and 2 in Europe. It is rare! It is a terrific little plant that I grow in my new tunnel and heated to 9C at night for most of the winter, just taking the edge off the nasty nights. It likes bright indirect light, good air movement and enough water not to dry out and seems easy under these conditions. They get regularly fertilised too, or I suspect it would probably die after blooming. The pic is of a different-looking form I got from Europe."
