This is an interesting species that has defied some of the typical rules of tillandsia in my experience.  Despite having fairly dense trichomes and a stiff leaf, it can't handle a ton of direct sun like other plants with those features.  Also, despite having a very xeric appearance, this species has a much more narrow temperature preference to that of other xeric species.  Recurving shape, nice little bloom, and a strong pupper
