That would be Tillandsia cyanea. It's a Bromeliad, a type of epiphyte. Momma will die, but she looks to have two babies already that will replace her in time. Big Grin

They require very different watering. Hopefully someone will let you know how they do it. Nice find!

This particular one is grown planted in a pot. It throws me off, as I'm used to the "free" Tillandsias. Hilarious!

I believe the mix it's currently in will be fine. :)
