I got this plant from a friend a while back when it was much smaller.  He grew it from seed that he brought back on one of his overseas travels - from a 'reputable source'.

And now my plant is flowering and has a white inflo.  Could this be a white form of remyi?  Or could it be a monostachia var. alba?

The leaves seem too narrow and thin textured to be G. Remyi - also inflorescence seems too short. Brom-l seed fund has G remyi "alba" listed but refer it to Cf. monostachya.

Hi, it's a nice white G. monostachya. This species has a huge range so varies a lot. I got this huge one with grey, leathery leaves, from Peru. Unfortunately it didn't self pollinate. The intense colour and bold striping are striking. Trees full of these would be quite a sight! Cheers, Pedro
