This hybrid has been created many different ways, in some cases showing more of one parent than another.  What I have available is a pretty balanced hybrid; the deep green slightly recurving leaves of brachycaulos with the size and stiffness of concolor.  Easy to grow.  Sometimes it has been called Tillandsia 'sparkler'; and sometimes it goes by Tillandsia kimosthensis.  I choose the latter because that is how it reads in the registry
