- Determinatie (11834): Walter Till (2014-11-03) =Tillandsia (Vriesea) heterandra
- Opmerking (11834): Jeffrey Kent (2014-11-03) - flowers and inflorescence match heterandra. Is this plant Greenhouse grown? That would affect the length of the inflorescence, size of the plant etc. (Verzonden: email@example.com)
- Opmerking (11834): Peter Tristram (2014-11-03) - Thanks Walter, Jeff, I agree that heterandra is a good choice, though such a variable species. Franz's species always seems to have a large infl for its size and is quite different to the leathery-leafed, heavily scaled plants I have also had as heterandra.
- Opmerking (11834): Jeffrey Kent (2014-11-04) - I have two clones, the clone from the drier forest tends to be smaller and have more scales on the leaves. I have not seen it from Colombia in the wild, but I would be it's from a wetter habitat. (Verzonden: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Opmerking (11834): Jeffrey Kent (2014-11-04) - In extremely dry areas where there are rocks as a substrate it tends to grade into Vr. rauhiana.
- Opmerking (11834): Eric Gouda (2014-11-10) - Spikes seems to be a little bit narrower, longer and less dense than in the type. I have seen plants with quite short spikes in the past with less color. But the dentate petals is one of the features of heterandra. (Verzonden: email@example.com)
