    Giant tillandsia

    Thought you guys might find this interesting. Went to a nursery in Albuquerque today and after I struck up a conversation about CPs he took me in the back to show me this:


    It's by far the biggest one I've ever seen, and the guy told me it was over 50 years old, and other than occasionally rotating it, it hasn't moved at all in ages. I have no idea what species it might be, but he gave me a cutting just for the conversation.

    Neat! A ball that size definitely takes a looooong time to create.

    Very cool! Looks a lot like Acanthostachys strobilacea, nice pick-up.
