If I was forced to pick an absolute favorite tillandsia, I think this might be the winner. It is, in my opinion, the most fragrant tillandsia available.  The fragrance is sweet, often compared to honeysuckle.  Relatively hardy and adaptable, but definitely thrives under the right conditions.  Be careful not to over water a mature clump as it can retain a lot of moisture.
