I would like to know what is this plant ? Does anybody have an idea ? Somebody offered it to me but there is no explanation about how to care about it... Some purple flowers appeared, during 2-3 days. And now it seems it lacks something, but I don't really know what to do :(

unknown plant

Any idea ? Thank you very much !

    $\begingroup$ As we can see on the picture, there are green small and thin leaves, and a big pink part in the middle. When I give water to the plant, this pink part seems to "drink" and fill up with water, as when we touch it, it is wet, like a sponge... A few days after I got the plant, purple flowers appeared (as on the picture), and wilted 2-3 days after. Now, the pink part is fading, and turning grey/green... I have no idea about where this plant is from. But it seems that it is an indoor plant. $\endgroup$

That is a beautiful Pink Quill, or Tillandsia cyanea. I have included two websites below about this plant, both of which include care tips.
