 Vriesea rauhii
     There's a bit of taxonomic confusion / name changing on this one...its current name is Vriesea, but it sure looks more like a Tillandsia [syn. T. werneriana]. Whatever you call it, its an outstanding bromeliad from Ecuador. They have beautiful rich purple-magenta, branching flower spikes. My only picture of it looks like it was taken by a two-year old (I hate to admit that), so look at:

to see a good example of what these look like.
