Very nice. I have a few bills but the flower is so short lived.

Yep,its not close to what it was in the photo right now..90f will do that. Nice foliage though and I have it hanging with Donkey tail hanging from the basket with it. Makes a nice combo.

correction: B."Fantasia"

It was labeled something else..but the years go by,and I guess that label was from another plant.

RE: Billbergia orlandiana 'Rainbow'

Stan, that name seems to be confused with Aechmea. Your plant looks like a cross between B.'Fantasia' and pyramidalis. Very cool.

Thanks Gonzer. Expertise appreciated.

And you cant edit titles or I would have changed the name. Sorry.
