I love this little airplant - especially the color - but I don't know what it is. Any ideas?

You would probably get quicker 'service' on the Plant ID forum:

Thanks, Hetty - I started to post it there, but I thought the experts would be over here. I'll repost in the Plant ID forum.

I don't know a thing about air plants but I wonder if it could be Air Plant (Tillandsia brachycaulos 'Miniata')


Or, how about Tillandsia velutina? http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=tillandsia+velutina&qpvt...

Thanks, Lin, it could very well be Tillandsia brachycaulos 'Miniata'. Some of the velutina pictures looked similar as well. Confused I think I'll try to mount it on one of the oak trees this spring and see how it grows outside.
