Tillandsia elvirae-grossiae
Mexico.
I bloomed this interesting, relatively small tank Till a couple of years ago and I think have figured out its identity. Itís one of Jeff Kentís collections from Peru (misnamed). It is easy to grow though fairly slow and is producing pups, always a bonus! I think, grown under more direct light than the fairly shady conditions I grew it under, the inflorescence would really colour up, in much the same way as T. guatemalensis does.
