I bought this today. The cultivar is not listed. Even the owner of the nursery did not know, they had just got the plant in yesterday. I've never had a bromeliad before. I assume I need to know the culitvar to care for it properly.

How do I care for it?

Also what do the yellowing leaf tips mean? The nursery worker said it was too wet.
