The second time this year that I notice a strange and unusual flower pattern when Tillandsias prepare their spike. Tillandsia cf. brachycaulos by Secun, on Flickr I grow this plant since seven years, and it never has shown this bleached colour. Usually it gets deep red all over, from iniciating the inflorescence until flowering and beyond. Then it returns to plain green. The same occurred for the first time this year with T. hondurensis. Can't be a water issue, cause both plants are grown at different places with different water sources.
