Tillandsia bergeri (BEAR-gehr-ee) is rightfully called the "Mad Pupper" of the Tillandsia world. Unlike most tillandsias, it offsets all year, thereby growing into an attractive clump faster than any other Tillandsia. It normally doesn't bloom every year but rather its effort goes into growing into a large specimen clump. It's ruffled flower petals is not common in this genus. If you notice the edges of the leaves curling up toward each other more than normal it is an indication that the plant wasn't receiving water frequently enough and that it needs to be submerged under "good" water for 12 to 14 hours. Good water is water that is not high in dissolved salts or other impurities. Bottled drinking, rain, and filtered tap are great.
