some of my Billbergia seedlings

allan4519(10a, Northern NSW Australia)February 24, 2010

Hi all, just some seedlings of Billbergia domingos martins coloring up, due to running out of food. Most of the siblings which have flowered have had excellent flowers,

Will take some of these pots to the Gold Coast Society meeting this week end for those interested in seeing them in the flesh. Allan Ladd, Northern NSW Australia.

Hey Allan - NICE!!!! It seems that Bill. Domingos Martins is a pedigree parent - never seen a dud from it yet.
Looking forward to the weekend Show of Flesh.

Hi Allan,

Always interesting to see new hybrids. I like the top right one with the dark underside and distinct horizontal banding and would love to see another pic when it colours up completely.

All the best, Nev.

P.S. You must have a sympathetic milkman to provide you with the nice maroon plastic bench supports. "The Aussie builder's best friend", the instant scaffold/work bench etc. at least 2 in every ute"

Hi Allan, those sure are some nice seedlings. That deep coloured plant (right side 1st pic) the one with DM's silver banding is looking great.
I'd like some close ups too...keen to see if they have DM's big dark spines.
Cheers, Andrew.

Agreed. Those banded purples are great. It took me a bit to realize that there were multiple seedlings in each pot. Makes a nice pot with the different plants in each one.

Allan,
It looks like you've got a whole Billbergia collection with that cross! That banded purple one (right side of the top photo in both sets) looks like something really special. Congrats!

I agree those are very nice, Allan. I never would have guessed Georgia as the other parent!
