Bromeliad Cultivar Register (7897) --

NIDULARIUM ‘Litmus’ Waters, P.* ?

A plant circulating in the USA, AU & NZ. as antoineanum. Nobody knows who identified it but it seems closely related to procerum. Its name reflects its unique habit where the primary bracts are red at anthesis but as the inflorescence ages these turn blue.
