Cryptanthus Number Listing

There have been a number of Cryptanthus listed in the Cultivar Registry under various collection names. These temporary identifiers have been moved here instead to facilitate the identification of these plants. This listing is current to October 2002.

 

Abbreviations

BAB = Brazil Anderson Berg

Bello =  Renato Bello, Mania Nursery, Rio de Janeiro, BR. Nurseryman, collector, hybridizer, and grower.

CC1991 = Crypt. Soc. Cumulative ref. of Crypt Cultivars

Coster = Paul de Coster, commercial grower and bromeliad breeder, Brussesesteenweg 94, 9230 Melle, Belgium

Foster  = Mulford Foster, Pioneer Florida collector, Author, Nurseryman, Hybridizer,grower and promoter of Bromeliads

SE = Southern Exposure Nursery, Bob Whitman, Beaumont, TX Bromeliad Nursery catalogs specializing in Cryptanthus

SEL = Marie Selby Gardens

TBT = The Bromeliad Tree (nursery)

Note that BIC (Bromeliad Identification Center) numbers have been converted to SEL number format and shown as SEL

Note also that species names can change because of taxonomic reasons but Cultivar names will not change, only their relationship with any species.
