Airplant - Tillandsia Curly Slim

I believe this is Tillandsia Curly Slim or perhaps may got it wrong.
This particular one is quite huge and continued to grow longer by the years.

It is best to hang it upside down as not to get the water at the crown center to avoid crown rot.
Truly this is a cascading beauty. I had cared for it to make sure the leaves gets minimum damage from sunburn and as enough hydrated to keep it silver green.

It is a slow growing plant and may get easily damaged if handled roughly therefore place them in a permanent location as they don't get stressed and avoid removing them often.

Some growers advise the gardeners to often submerge them in water and turn them upside down to drain off the excess water - I find that too tedious and requiring too much effort. It is best to tie them up side ways and water them daily if the conditions are right.
