|TILLANDSIA ‘Holm's Tiger’||Holm B.||circa 1987|
Mature, caulescent, upright rosette to10 cm diameter x 15cm. high. Leaves only little channeled, outer leaves long, strongly recurved, slightly curled at the tips and stiffer. Inner leaves short,straight and softer. All leaves wide at base. Silver-grey leaves are covered with densely soft trichomes. Quite densely, brownish, horizontal stripes cover all leaves, apparently due to a lack of scales. This comes from the seed parent, which was as well a striped T. straminea. Long, thin, erect peduncle (20 cm) , branched inflorescence bears lavender flowers with white centre eyes. Reg. Doc. 6/2016 by Tanja Richter.
