Recently reclassified from vriesea to tillandsia, this is a very symmetrical stiff leaved species that grows several pups off of stems called stolons.  I love how symmetrical this plant is, and the leaves are very stiff and angular.  It is a xeric species that likes strong indirect light but not direct light
