Previously in the genus Tillandsia, this plant has been reclassified into the newly formed bromeliad genus Wallindsia. This is one of the only species I would say not only can survive inside, but actually does quite well.  Cyanea has a very showy bloom and does best potted, but will be shipped bare root
