Alfonso Trudu 11/21
Alfonso Trudu ... "T. pueblensis x ionantha is in flower. The plant was imported by Peter Tristram from BRT, which has it listed as T. 'Arden's Little Thunder' (https://www.birdrocktropicals.com/tillandsia-ardens-little-thunder/). The same cross also appears on the Tropiflora website (https://tropiflora.com/products/tillandsia-little-thunder), but it came from Paul Isley according to Dennis Cathcart. I think the plant is worthy of registration."
Geoff Lawn ... "This T. 'Arden's Little Thunder' is now registered and posted online at: http://registry.bsi.org/?id=17014&whatsnew#17014"
