Hi

Does someone know why this new genus got moved out of Canistrum??
Came as lindenii exiguum, I assume it is actually lindenii rosea.

I had planted this up the hill, not so easily seen, and luckily we noticed the red bracts!


In case the pictures are not clear enough, all the brown in the middle of inflorescence are hairy floral bracts.  They are wet, and I thought they were just dried up and dead!  But then I looked into the description, and saw lindenii has hairy bracts and scape.  I had to peel back a scape bract to find the hairy scape!

thanks Mike

here is a better pic of the hairy bracts, they are dry in this one.

Re the distinctions between Edmudoa and Canistrum, I guess I need to see Leme's book to know why he broke them out.  But in Butcher's key to Bromeliads, he shows Edmundoa as "Inflorescence wool persistent after anthesis.", while the next group is not persistent wool.
