Does any one grow this Bill??, I can't seem to find much information on it, is it a fast grower or slow grow, all so I would like to see a pic of a mature plant, if any one would like to share.
Thanks for all and any help

Bear I think the name Kuhlmannii was incorrect from the first time iw was used. Did you see the plant some where bearing this name?

I think so the correct spelling is Billbergia kuhlmannii. But I don't know to post my photo on this site. Please advise me.

Thanks

Its look like a normal billbergia seedling.
Did you ever find a picture of a mature plant tagged with same name?

This doesn't look like the plant I have. Mine has grey leaves. I would be glad to share a photo only I haven't figured out how to post one (anyone please help this newbie)?
My plant is one of my favorites. I had to manipulate things to figure it out. It didn't grow for a while until I placed it in full Mississippi sun. I got it as a small offset last year and I haven't got a bloom yet but I suspect that will be soon. I think it is an elegant and graceful plant. Can't wait for a bloom since these plants produce a stunning show but, alas, like most billbergias, they don't last long....the good part is you can enjoy the graceful shape all year long!

I think the concensus is...this plant often gets mixed up with B. brasiliensis
Here is a link to a photo you can cut and paste into your browser
