Somehow, i find the name Kegel familiar and yes.. There's a Dr Arnold H. Kegel (1894 - 1981) who was a gynecologist that invented Kegel Perineometer (used from measuring vaginal air pressure) and Kegel exercises (squeezing of the muscles of the pelvic floor). I wonder if the same Dr. Kegel collect specimen 881!
While i had 2 plants, one rotted and collapsed within days of owning it. I suspected it travelled with water in the rosette. Wet Tillandsias travel very very poorly. The other plant grows exceptionally well and pupped into 2 here.
