¡Ola! Reginaldo! Some wonderful pictures there and some very interesting forms of some species. My garedenii does not resemble that one at all! what is the possibility of getting some seed?

Best wishes,

Conrad

Hi Conrad, at the moment I do not have seeds. If there is formation of seeds in the next flowering  I'll let you know. Do you know if this specis is self-pollinating?

Gardenii is a selfer. I am looking for the genetical variation to prevent too much inbreeding in the collection I have. The gardenii that I have here has a very tight compact inflorescence, and i have seen similar ones that you have in the FCBS photo index, but it could also bee a sub-species.

I am always on the look out for Tilly seed, and am willing to invest the time in growing them. The local batches of tillandsia were propagated from limited imported stock and could all be related. I have pollinated species from different suppliers to find no seed development, proving that they are very closely related - if not propagated from the same stock.

Best wishes,

Conrad

I have few species of Tillandsia, and the photos I posted earlier are of species blooming in the summer.
At the moment I have just one species of Tillandsia in bloom, is the T. didisticha, photo below.

Very nice photos Reginaldo. Please keep posting them. I love seeing the in their natural habitat. I can travel into the jungle and wilderness via the computer. One day I will visit them myself...I cannot wait. Until then I will rely on you for some really good pictures.

Thanks again Reginaldo!

Reginaldo we have to admit that we are not really into Tills , we only have a few that took a lot of  convincing to have but your photo's are stunning, whether it is by accident or on purpose the night time back ground really shows off the plants in flower. All are equally good and I cant pick which is my favourite although Im tending toward the last image. Like the others its wonderful to see broms in there natural habitat and look forward to seeing hopefully lots more.

Many thanks - Jaga

Hi everyone.

Reginaldo - Great pictures once again. I love the effect with the black background, it really highlights the plants beautifully. Please keep the pictures coming and thanks for sharing.

All the best, Nev.

Nev and Jaga, I put a black velvet as background, gives a bit of work but highlights the plant.

Thanks

Conrad, Reginaldo - that looks more like T. chapeuensis.  Check it out here:  http://www.bromeliad.org.au/pictures/Tillandsia/chapeuensis.htm

I dunno Robin, my T. chapeuensis has leaves that are very relaxed and soft.
