TILLANDSIA ‘Compressor’ Flower A* <1990

Mature rosette to 30cms. diameter x 30cms. tall in spike. Distributed for over 20 years by Tropimaya Nursery, Guatemala as T. compressa, which was probably wild-collected in Guatemala. However, Harry Luther advises the true T. compressa is confined to the West Indies on Carribean islands upland slopes and does not resemble T. Compressor , which is known incorrectly amongst collectors as T. fasciculata cf. var. venosispica. T. Compressor's true identity is under review. Reg. Doc. 8/2011 by Andrew Flower. Fasciculata Group
Country of origin: Guatemala
