Tillandsia Minnie
Cv. of T. ionantha by Bob Hudson, Cairns.
Tillandsia ‘Minnie’ by Butcher May 2010.
This plant originated in the collection of Bob Hudson, Cairns, Queensland in the early 2000’s in a seed batch of selfed T. ionantha. This one did not grow like a ‘normal’ but stayed dwarf and usually about 3cm diameter at flowering size. This seemed worthwhile propagating and there are several specimens already being grown around Australia.
