Hi everyone,

Some photos of one Vriesea from the Atlantic Rain Forest and what appears to be a natural hybrid. (Photos are from previous years)

Hi everyone.

Reginaldo - I love the one with the pendulous inflorescence and the "turn up" at the end; certainly something different.

Thanks for sharing.

All the best, Nev.

Greetings all, Reginaldo- very interesting, Im assuming all of the above is the same plant at different times ? and I know its probably some what complicated but why is this plant thought to be a natural hybrid, was it found near to the possible parents, Im guessing DNA testing would be required to sort it out.

Sorry for the curly questions, Jaga

Hi everyone,

Jaga, Nev - some time ago I sent a division of this plant for the Elton Leme for possible identification and he replied that it might be a natural hybrid.
But I think being a natural hybrid between two species this crossing probably already could have been produced in cultivation. But I have not seen photos of similar plants on the internet. This plant is still an enigma to me.

Yes Reginaldo there are enigma's everywhere in the Brom ever expanding world. Im surprised that there is not hybrids everywhere in the wild of Brazil considering just how easy it is to pollinate them.
