Bom, at first glance it appears #1 is T. exerta, #2 is T. fasciculata, and #3 is T. capitata

RE: Help with Tillandsia ID

Don't know the correct names,but i love #3

RE: Help with Tillandsia ID

Thanks Gonzer for the ID. Photo number 2 looks more like a T. fasciculata than T. rothii. Probably a hybrid because the leaves share some T. rothii characteristics.

Kathi, number three is indeed a beautiful plant. Leaves were green but turned maroon just before flowering.
