|AECHMEA ‘Kiwi Baker’||? / Bill Baker*||circa 2000 ?|
First appeared at WBC San Diego in 2006, as shown by Eloise Lau. Was tagged as Aechmea Kiwi, but confused with the previously-registered Aechmea 'Kiwi', so renamed by Bill Baker in California as Aechmea 'Kiwi Baker'. Appears to be a species form of Ae. recurvata, not a hybrid. In strong light, it has brown mottling & cross-banding on the foliage reverse. Exact origin is unrecorded--wild-collected ? Reg. Doc. 12/2008 by Derek Butcher
