This clone I acquired from a local collector. Could be RFI’s original clone or it could be a clone from Tropiflora based on the other tagged plants in the collection. This is a gorgeous hybrid that has very dense trichomes, they are quite scurfy.  Influence from both parents is evident and the best qualities of each were passed on in this hybrid. Best displayed sideways or upside down while young to avoid rotting, strong light required for best growth in early years.  This is the same formula as Tillandsia Ty
