Bartramii is one of many species considered a grass-type Tillandsia and is commonly mistaken for juncea, juncifolia, and Floridana.  What separates bartramii is the beautiful fuschia hue it holds when placed in strong indirect light and during bloom, softening the industrial shape and natural color of this plant
