Hi everyone.

Bromilad - I'm not sure about the ID of your Billbergia, but it would help if you could post some pictures of the "whole" plant (side view) and pic's of the leaves, upper and lower surfaces.

The pic's I have of the inflorescence of Bill. pyramidalis var pyramidalis (see attachment) are very different to your plant as the flowers are a totally different colour and much more bunched than your plant, so I don't think it's that one.

If it is one of the forms of Bill pyramidalis, I think it would more than likely be Bill. pyramidalis var. lutea. If you look at the pictures on the FCBS Photo Index, especially the close-up by Peter Franklin you will see some similarities to your plant. What colour were the bracts on your plant before they lost their colour?

We mustn't lose sight of the fact that it may well be a different plant altogether, that's why I would like to see the leaves and any markings on them such as barring or spotting as they are all part of the ID jig-saw puzzle.

All the best, Nev.

Bill. pyramidalis var pyramidalis

I based my suggestion on http://www.bromeliad.org.au/pictures/Billbergia/pyramidalis.htm.

They seem close, it could be some hybrid.

If I recall correctly the bracts were pink.

Hi everyone.

Bromilad - Sorry I can't ID your plant but you could try posting the pic's on the site below. I know it's "Face Book", but this particular Face Book site is just about Billbergias and is visited by many knowledgeable Billbergia growers and I'm sure they will be able to help you.

All the best, Nev.
