Just enter the genus, Tillandsia, as the accepted botanical name. Enter Showtime as the cultivar name.

Don't bother entering the bulbosa x streptophylla information. We don't list the parents of hybrids in the botanical name. If you want to add this information, you can do it in a plant comment.

Hi Cliff,
If this is your plant TILLANDSIA ‘Showtime’it looks like what you want is the following:

Primary common name: Airplant
Accepted botanical name
(Genus species): Tillandsia
Cultivar: Showtime

Tilllandsia bulbosum X Tillandsia streptophylla would be placed in the Parentage box in a data update.

Here you go. Air Plant (Tillandsia 'Showtime')

Yes, Evan. You were smart enough to see whether the plant was already in the database. I wasn't. *Blush*
