- Add Note (1919): Eric Gouda (2008-02-07) - Peter: we have something like that, that was labeled P.flammea (keys out to that species, but leaves doesn't fit at all), but now it is labeled Pitcairnia aff. undulata. I'm waiting for it flowering.
- Add Note (1919): H.E.Luther (2008-02-07) - Looks a bit like an undocumented P. undulata hyb. that Ive seen. HEL
- Add Note (1919): Peter Tristram (2008-02-12) - It sure has affinities with undulata. One interesting difference is that it
readily selfed so I'll grow on seed and see what I get. Any idea on the
others posted by me or Doug Binns?
