This is a filiform with very thin leaves that grows in a ball shape.  Stays relatively small, reaching maturity at about 4" across.  Prefers shade/indirect light and frequent moisture as the leaves are not designed to hold much water.  Better outdoors because it also likes good air flow. Almost identical to Tillandsia argentea, however argentea produces crimson colored flowers
