Lisa, what do the leaf tips look like on your Witt. ? They should be quite pointy and curve up slightly. When grown in high/light full sun here,our clone gets more a compact vase-like shape and goes orangy/red, like the photo above - though that one is somewhat darker than usual. Maybe there are a couple of different clones or one is some kind of hybrid ?

I rescued my very neglected Witt. cyathiformis after the show  Tongue I found it had 3 nice large plants growing in the pot, so I'll repot, & move into much higher light.
Chris said he's been growing his display plant under 30% white shade cloth.

The Aussie brom site shows one with a slight rosey flush:-

Kiwi’s often complain about our cool growing conditions…but we can grow good tillandsia, and they were a real feature of the show plants.
