Question air plant?

Got this out of one of those little terrarium setups you find in grocery stores these days... anyone know what it is? It's been doing fine in my HOB for quite a while, although I thought they didn't like to stay wet (if it is an air plant)...

It's Cryptanthus Bivitatus. It falls under the bromeliad family, but is more terrestrial. This can tolerate water, but prefers not to have the cups in its leaves filled like some tropical species do.
