Tillandsia, Funckiana

This plant grows without soil.  It absorbs water and nutrients from the air through it's leaves.  Long stem plant with needle like leaves that are pink at the tip.  Unlike most air plants, this is longer and more narrow rather than roundish.  Recommended to mount upside down so it curls up toward the light.  Water once a week by soaking face down for 10-20 minutes.  Shake off excess water.  Grows quickly.
