Here we are in new month. I will share a photo of a new addition to the ever-growing Bromeliad collection.

'Burnsie's Spiral' was a natural sport produced by carolinae tricolor.

That is one cheerful looking plant. Nice addition, when is the tour of your garden scheduled? Hilarious!

That is one group that I have not added to lately. I might have to see what might work this late in the
season. Of course, I am in very hot and humid Houston, TX so what I would be looking for in August are Bromeliads
that don't have a big problem with heat and humidity and when winter comes can deal with some freezing temperatures
because I will be growing them outside. We pretty much grow everything outside because the 4 cats have the indoors.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.

Scott, I have that one, I think I even sent one to Lynn. It is very prolific like most fireballs are. Got it two years ago, had five plants at a Bromeliad Society sale, the full plant pic was taken in May this year, you can see how fast it grows. This one gets redder with more sun, the green plants are more shaded where it hangs, the red are out in more sun.

Neo. 'Fireball' striated is really nice and yes, thanks to Sherri, I have a lovely pup from her gorgeous clump of plants!!

Mine is temporarily stuck in a coconut planter along with Neo. 'Mo Peppa Please' (also a gift from Sherri) and a little 'Hot Embers' that came from Bromeliad Pardise.

Neoregelia 'Radioactive'
Got this one as a little unrooted pup last year. The purchased pup rooted but did not grow. It produced a pup that grew quickly and today looks like what I was expecting.

I got two new ones in the mail today.

Portea petropolitana extensa. The mother plant is 20 inches and the pup is about 15 inches. No evidence of her having bloomed yet.

Here are my thoughts on your Tillandsias.
butzii pictures 8 & 10
bulbosa pictures 1 & 9
caput medusa 2 & 6
filifolia 🤔 I do not see in your pictures (pic below) as it has thread leaf blades.
Thumb of 2020-08-06/ScotTi/2359b0
ionantha comes in different forms with the different cultivars. I have only personally seen ionantha as a small compact plant.
I do not see the Houston or tectorum 'Ecuador' in your above post photos.

Tillandsia lovers share your thoughts of proposed Id's agree or disagree.
I have no clue on pictures 3,4,5 & 7

Well @ScotTi I can tell you what I sort of know!

T. caput medusae are Pic # 4 and Pic #7 for sure.
I think you are right Pic # 8 and Pic # 10 do look like T. butzii
You are probably right about Pic #1 and Pic #9 being T. bulbosa

This is a picture of T. 'Houston' Light Pink
Thumb of 2020-08-06/Willinator/766214
Here is a picture of T. tectorum 'Ecuador'
Thumb of 2020-08-06/Willinator/227812

I am guessing that Pic # 2 and Pic # 6 are large
and I think they are the T. Ionantha

So the plants that I really just don't know are
Pic # 3 and Pic # 5 which I don't think are T. filifolia
So what did I get and what about
Pic # 8 and Pic # 10 which I thought were T. filifolia
but are likely T. butzii instead.

Well I was looking at various Air Plants at the Air Plant Shop where I got my
Tillandsia and the ones which look the most like the Tillandsia that I got are
Pic # 2 and Pic # 6 look like Tillandsia seleriana OK everyone what do you think
about these two pictures
Thumb of 2020-08-07/Willinator/5a78be Thumb of 2020-08-07/Willinator/eed2c8

And do these pictures Pic # 3 and Pic # 5 look like Tillandsia baileyi
