I have had this lovely, curvy Tillandsia for years but this is the first time I have seen it bloom. I would love to know its name.
I had to remove it from its previous location because the tree died and it is just 'hanging out' at the current one but seems to be happy enough!

Maybe Tillandsia tenuifolia?

I don't think so, the foliage is distinctly curved in one direction which I don't see on T. tenuifolia; here is a picture of the whole plant.

This is the same as I think I identified before as Tillandsia araujei?

That is so cool! Excuse me for blurting OT in an ID forum, but if that's not more points in favor of Naples as far as being a location for retirement consideration, I don't know what would be. I want a tree with those cool little plants in it!!
