- Note (13883): Jerry Raack (2018-04-29) - I'm guessing this is not native to this location. It appears to be Barfussia wagneriana (used to be in genus Tillandsia, and is easier to find if you google it as a Tillandsia). (Sent: email@example.com)

- Note (13883): Dr Jon Fuller (2018-04-30) - Thank you for the ID. Since almost all the images I have posted are being cultivated in various tropical gardens, I suspected that most, if not all, were not native to Costa Rica.
