These clumps have an unusual growth pattern; most tillandsia do not grow into dense clumps like this at such a young age.  Despite this, the color and shape of these clumps is very attractive.  These clumps will grow fairly slow given how many plants there are in each clump that are sharing moisture and nutrients, but they are still beautiful and a great accent piece
