Tillandsia teres
Peru.
Peter Tristram 02/14
Peter Tristram ... "This an update of photos of T. teres currently in bloom. This plant looks like blooming until it gives up the ghost. I have pollinated quite a few flowers though they donít always have pollen. As you can see the colour of the petals can vary too Ė bluish-purple when long and dark purple when short. Interesting! Since it didnít produce any babies when younger, the only hope is seed... or go back to Chongoyape in northern Peru."
