ID for tillie #1?

paul_(z5 MI)November 20, 2013

Hello, hello!
A kind gent sent me some Tillandsia to try out in my terrs. Unfortunately, he has no idea what species they might be. Hoping the brom-gurus here might be able to enlighten me. I have a separate post for each.

If there is a different angle or plant part for which a photo might be useful please let me know. (No idea what the flowers would look like.)

So here is Till. #1

Possibly T. festucoides or T. juncea.

I bet "festucoides" is the real name of what was sold to me as "grassifolia". My plant is shorter than yours, but may be younger. It's easy to separate young plants off the main plant, and mine all seem happy. I think they chat with the juncea, which may be distant cousins.

'Grassifolia' is just a random name picked from a hat for sales purposes.

Thanks for the IDing, folks! Some of these look so much alike to me (like my #3 which apparently has several options), that I'd be at a loss in many case even to narrow down the playing field.
