- Add Note (1981): Walter Till (2008-09-16) - Probably a preanthetic T. secunda
- Add Note (1981): Harry Luther (2008-09-16) - I agree.
- Add Note (1981): Walter Till (2008-09-16) - T. mima would be another guess.
- Add Note (1981): Harry Luther (2008-09-16) - T. mima should be bigger, broader-leaf rosette , also more silvery-grey.
- Add Note (1981): Greg Dauss (2008-09-16) - Thank you Walter and Harry. The identification of it being T. secunda corresponds with old data of mine (wrote down the species, lost the tag) on file.
- Add Note (1981): Eric J. Gouda (2008-09-16) - All discussion above was given without the flower detail, that has been added later!
- Add Note (1981): Eric J. Gouda (2008-09-16) - Seeing the detail of the flower (earlier not available), I think it is a hybrid with Tillandsia secunda. The habit doesn't fitt T.secunda eather. Defenitely not this species, see picture of the flower taken in the wild (stamens included): click here or see gallery.
- Add Note (1981): greg (2008-09-25) - The elongated anthers might indicate T. extensa perhaps?
- Add Note (1981): Harry E. Luther (2008-09-25) - T. platyphylla, extensa or propagulifera; whoever has the specimen should be able to figure it out.. HEL
- Identification (1981): Eric Gouda (2009-02-23) =Tillandsia propagulifera
- I have a T.propagulifera flowering at the moment and I'm sure it is this species. Check out with some time it will produce pubs in the inflorescence. Mostly it has very brittle leaves. (Sent: email@example.com)
- Add Note (1981): Perla Ortiz (2011-06-22) - It looks much alike Tillandsia limbata (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Add Note (1981): Greg Dauss (2011-06-23) - After flowering it matches to T. extensa. (Sent: email@example.com)
- Add Note (1981): Andrew Smith (2011-06-23) - A nice Alluaudia (Didiereaceae) growing at its side in images (1) and (2). Where is this (presumably not Madagascar)?
- Add Note (1981): Greg Dauss (2011-06-24) - Andrew, this is in Oceanside CA, 5 miles from the coast at my home. That is my Madagascan garden with Alluaudia, Didieria, and Pachypodiums and other assorted African succulents. For some Tillandsias it feels like home.
