Mature small clumping rosette to 6cm. diameter x 10.5cm. high, a standard size as grown at Tillandsia International Nursery, Coarsegold, California. Large, thick leaf with upright growth habit. Advice (5/2018) from Frank Messina, nursery owner there, indicates this cultivar comprises several slightly different clones which Frank imported in 1980 from Bromeliifolia Nursery, Guatemala and is probably of wild origin.
