11908 - Bromeliads (Wild) - 2014-11-20|
(Dimension: 1530 x 2050 pixels - Counter: 7198)
Locality: Peru - Amazonas - Growing at about 1800 meters in Leimebamba. Large plant to 2.5 meters.
Photographer: Jerry Raack
Note: Here is another plant growing in the same vicinity as the first. Neither plant has much color to the bracts. I'll post a photo of Tillandsia ferreyrae that I did see at much lower elevation to show the typical color. I'm surprised the color would vary this dramatically between clones of the same species.
