Neoregelia 'Takemura Grande'. One of the legendary 'Takemura's" from the 1978 article that James Elmore wrote on the 'Fabled Takemuras' in volume #1, issue #1 of Grande Magazine. Although the origin and history of the cross is still debated, the story is that it was in the early 1960's when apparently, seed of a concentrica Hybrid was sent to Takemura in Japan from Richter in Germany. Takemura in turn shared seed or seedlings with Ralph Davis in Florida.
A beautiful display of color often going from a frosty silver to silver-green with gorgeous deep purple banding and leaf tips. A very large sized Hybrid attaining mature sizes of up to 24" - 28" across.
