More help needed to identify these Aechmea and Tillandsia

Beitrag von Fitólogo » Sonntag, 6 Juli 2008, 15:19

Hi again,

1- thesephotos I tohought to be Aechmea fendleri but the flower spike seem to be more like a Portea sp. What do you think? And what species it would be?

2- This I think can be a Aechmea victoriana, no? I also saw something like Aechmea 'royal wine', a cultivar. So which of the two could it be?

I think a little "Thank You" for the answers here
would be nice before starting another monster question post.

Wouldnt give one the feeling of working for a
1-800-name-that-bromeliad hotline.

Or is it again urgent ??

:?

To the Australian and Russian member I really thank you again as I did after reading your comments. I redone the 1st post where before begining the post I THANKED YOU FOR YOUR HELP AND EVEN MENTION MR TIMM'S NAME. I see he didn't see this before agressive accusation.

Do not need any politeness orientation here. About the 'monster question' I regret to trouble you all with my questions, really, I intended to be humble as usual in all forums I use. Just thought it would be nice to cheer this section up, but wrong thought.

Mr Timm I defenitely ask you to read both post again and SEE CAREFULLY THAT ON EACH POST THE WORD 'THANK YOU' IS ALWAYS WRITTEN.

But no worries, I re-say THANK YOU again, it is absolutely not a problem to me.

Hi Fitólogo

I just ask you to read your own posting once again
with the eyes of a normal forum user.
First you post a requestwith a bunch of pictures,
calling for help and telling it is urgent.
Your post was answered by 3 different forum members
without any answer, comment or reaction from you.
Than you start up a second post
in the same manner with half a dozen of pics........

So what should I think ??

If you take a few minutes and browse through the forum,
you will find dozens of posts like yours.
I estimate that over 70% of all registrated members just
dropped in once or twice to let us do an identification for them,
and off they went. And that is becoming more and more
a pain in the neck to me.

What you call aggressive accusation is to me a reminder to
all users that a forum is about taking and giving.
And even if a newbie does not have a lot to give.....
demanding a little 'Thank You' or at least some sort of reaction
should be justified.

BTW:
Image 1, 2 +3
(5597898902900, 1b438f8903412 and 1cfed28903540
may be Aechmea mexicana with some questionmarks.

Greetings, Timm

I guess that red spike one is Aechmea ...but many of Aechmeas hybrids look like this too. But I think it might be Aech. 'Royal Wine'.

About the Tillandsia. T.recurvata and T.mallemontii are so alike to each other. But I think your is T.recurvata.

Sorry I dunno about that pink spike Aechmea.

Cheers,
Seth.
