Can someone ID this plant?

cryptoJuly 14, 2010

Hi guys, I bought this plant along with the tillandsia and the moss in this small ceramic bowl. The problem is that I don't know the what kind of plant the pink one is. I'm not even sure if it's a tillandsia, nor am I sure if this post is for this subforum (I know very little about terrestrial plants).

I've searched on google images to find out what type of plant this is, so that I can properly take care of it. If anyone can identify the pink plant, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Looks like Cryptanthus to me. They are a genus of bromeliads commonly called Earth Stars. I've never grown them, so I can't tell you anything else.

It definitely does look like it belongs to that genus. Thanks for your help :)
