RE: please ID this Tillandsia

If the older leaves, which I can't see, are curled at the tips then you have T. duratii

RE: please ID this Tillandsia

The way the leaves are opening makes me think T. streptocarpa. The handful of duratiis I've seen 'drop' their leaves one at a time while the streptocarpas make more of an open rosette

RE: please ID this Tillandsia

Forgot to mention T straminea which, the more I look the likelier it seems.
