- Identification (11740): Bruce Dunstan (2014-08-08) =Guzmania verecunda?
- Note (11740): Peter Tristram (2014-08-08) - Another description thin on detail! Looks like the BSI Journal pic of verucunda. I have a plant from Jeff just budding labelled verucunda too so can compare. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Note (11740): Jeffrey Kent (2014-08-08) - Guz. (Mezobromelia??) verecunda. I received this plant years ago from Harry with this name. I also have a red clone from Ecuador as well. It's self fertile at least in my greenhouse. I do not know enough about the seeds to make a determination as to the genus. Genetic studies need to be made. (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note (11740): Peter Tristram (2014-08-09) - Yes Jeff, and like T schimperiana too that Bruce also posted photos of. Phylogenetic work on these under described species will be interesting.
