So I bought this at Sprouts and have no idea what it is ...and it didn't come with care instructions. I assumed it was another succulent so I treated it like my other succulents. It's been fine until recently, when I put it closer to the window when it started turning brown. Gave it's some water and it's big time drooping and Browning. Anyway I'm desperate to know what it is so I can save it. Appreciate the help

You have a Tillandsia. Take the plant out of the glass display orb and soak (submerged) in water for about 1 hr every 3-4 days. Shake off excess water and place back in display orb. Best to use distilled water or collected rain water for soaking. Tillandsia take in moisture thru the leaves.
It will not hurt to submerge the plant overnight if leaves have become very dry.
