- Add Note (6273): Eric Gouda (2010-11-29) - Peter, the plant looks a little bit different than my Tillandsia reversa from Knize but the inflorescence is quite similar. What is the size of your plant? (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Add Note (6275): Eric Gouda (2010-12-06) - Peter: it seems to me that your floral bracts are lepidote, is this true? The measurements are close to my T.reversa, but the leaves of my plant are broader and seems to be more waxy.
- Add Note (6273): Peter Tristram (2010-12-06) - fb are lepidote, plant is basically stemless, sheats are broad and dark. It's a pretty big plant - over 80cm across/ 70cm high. Your T. reversa looks like some of the caulescent plants we got with narrower, more ligulate leaves. (Sent: email@example.com)
