Re: Billbergia nutans

From a bromeliad website:
Billbergia nutans is a tropical American air plant (Epiphyte) with a rosette 
of pineapple-like leaves. Flowers are carried in long, branching clusters. 6 
long stamens protrude from the blue-edged, green blossoms, and joints below 
the flowers are decorated with narrow, scarlet bracts.

The plant may be grown in hanging baskets or bulb pan, which should contain 
more than the average amount of drainage material.

Little or no sun is required if there is plenty of light Water frequently 
while the plant is' in active growth during spring and summer, and sparingly 
during the resting period in fall and winter. A warm, moist atmosphere is 
essential for successful cultivation.
