Tillandsia straminea in bloom. (Tillandsia straminea)

Obviously named after me.
I have to post another try. For now just wanted to show the nice color and let you know it smells like grape kool aid.

Agree, loving the colour! What a bonus too - I’d be sniffing the scent all day!

Tillandsias are such interesting plants. I assume that your plant has several pups as the blooming mother plant will die , right? How long is this one blooming Stan?

They do usually do,some die slower than others. This is the second time and the pup grew larger than the original. I take that Klahanie that unlike the original the pup has never had its roots torn to be sold.
This isnt a good photo of the plant. I would say it's one of the more elegant looking common Tillandsia..the silver white is very bright,very nice. The Tillandsia itself not small or between overall.

I agree, it is quite elegant looking silver Tillandsia and the fower too.
