I've read of people pollinating long tubular flowers with a cat's whisker, or a long piece of plastic pulled from shade cloth.

Hi estación seca.

Sorry am so late answering!

Yep the whole area of seeds and my own T. X crosses is an issue I need to be getting into.

Have collected some pollen but the timing of doing the pollination is still a mystery. In a few more flower seasons should have the knowledge to have a go at my own X seed.

This winter has been so mild that the Tillandsia are not flowering. They usually flower in early winter as most seem to do. Hoping for some colder weather for 3 to 5 days to help me with flowering. Hopefully the cold winds at the end of winter beginning of spring will take place this year. Some plants in the last week have started giving me a few flowers.

These plants are 3 years old and it is their 1st real attempt to flower.

T. bulbosa does very well here and they enjoy a bit more water than most. This is one of my wife's favorite Tillandsia's.
