Tillandsia peruviana
Formerly Vriesea sagasteguii.
Peter Tristram 02/12.
From Peter Tristram...
"Some plants take many years between flowerings and T peruviana/Vr sagasteguii is no exception.
I doubt it will self so maybe in 20 years the BCR might record it as a parent...
It is big too, about 60cm and weighs a ton!
