I don't recall the name of this Tillandsia .. the one in the foreground and in focus. Can someone help me put a species name to it?

Hi Anne,
I believe that is Caput-Medusae. It is a bit difficult to tell for certain since I can not see the whole plant but that is most likely it.

For comparison, here's Air Plant (Tillandsia caput-medusae)

If not that one, perhaps: Tillandsia (Tillandsia intermedia)

Thanks! After looking both up, I'm leaning toward the Tillandsia caput-medusae.
