I posted this one last year, but I need more help. I was told this is a tilandsia fasciculata. That would make it an air plant. It's been in soil since we got it about 4-5 years ago. When we first purchased it, it had a beautiful spiky purple flower in the middle. It's never flowered since. I keep it near a east facing window where it gets bright morning sun. I water it weekly and it's been fine for years. My question is how do I get it to flower again, and do you think it is a tillandsia fasciculata? Thanks for the help.
