A Plant I Can't Kill

I'm a houseplant killer. Most houseplants don't last very long with me. That's why Biker Boy is in charge of all things houseplant related. The exception has been an Air Plant (Bromeliad) that we've had for over 10 years. 10 years! A decade!

And it's actually reproduced twice in that time.

The momma plant in on the left. About 5 years ago she gave "birth" to the plant in the white pot. About a year ago she gave "birth" to the plant in the middle. Every time she weans a plant, she gets a little smaller. Kinda like my chest after weaning two kids. Ugh!
Just spritz the plants with water every once in awhile and they're good to go. They are epiphytes, so they don't need to be in a soil substrate to get their nutrients. Gotta love a plant I can't kill.
Any recommendations for indestructible plants?
