Tillandsia barclayana var. minor
Formerly Vriesea

Peter Tristram ... "I struggle to grow this outside when the rains come but it is fine somewhere more protected. If it's from me it'll be from Tropiflora's old Ecuador/Peru collections. I did a photo shoot a few yrs ago.
The var minor is the relatively common one, in many collections. It blooms and pups well, whereas straight barclayana is a more reluctant bloomer and gives fewer pups. I have quite a few clones of straight barclayana with inflorescences varying considerably in length."
