- Identification: Eric Gouda (2014-11-20) =Tillandsia ferreyrae
- Is close to Tillandsia spiraliflora, but distichous flowers (Sent: email@example.com)
- Add Note (11908): Jerry Raack (2014-11-20) - Eric, I agree what I posted can not be Tillandsia spiraliflora due to the distchous arrangement of the flowers, but it fits otherwise in size, color and the powdery substance on the inflorescence. I'll post a picture of Tillandsia ferreyrae that I did see at much lower elevation quite a few miles away for comparison.
