Edit: About Tillandsia velekiana.

Huge help from both of you. Thank you very much.

Will look more closely at the detail in the links offered.

But it sounds like a miricale that any of these plants are still alive here.

Looks like I will sell them as colder climate plants this winter. Which is basically now here. It is a no winner Tillandsia in this climate.

Quick question... if you don't mind. Have you been able to flower your T. utriculata ssp. pringlei ?

The reason I ask is because I've been growing this one for many years and have not had this species flower to date. I really like the structure of this plant, its small size, and the grey/silver color of its leaves.

This is one of the most prolific pup producing 'Tills' in my collection. It does not take long for a single plant to transform into a large clump. I know there was a conversation about T. utriculata & T. utriculata v pringlei in regards to the pringlei variety having either polycarpic or monocarpic tendencies (along with the comment that the monocarpic form has a nickname of the "pupping clone") on an Australian bromeliad.org website some years ago. I don't think that has anything to do with flowering, but I'm not quite sure.

Hi wisdomseeker.

No have not been able to get T. utriculata pringlei to flower here as yet. But I have only had an example for under 12 months though. Do expect it to flower for me. It is just such a strong growing miniture here. I very much like the flower description. Only when these plants flower will I truely know which plant this is. At least I know they are all from the same colony.

Found this link interesting.
