I'm not entirely convinced the parentage of this plant is correct, I have trouble seeing the streptophylla genetics anywhere.  There is a registered hybrid called T. gorgon with the same cross genetics but it is much curlier, more closely resembling the seed parent streptophylla. I have a policy of not changing names unless I am 100% certain, so this is what I will call it.  Either way, it is quite large and has a cool shape, definitely a unique air plant!
