Billbergia 'Fosters Striate' is a fantastic plant! It was created by a famous Bromeliad grower called Mulford B. Foster who lived in Orlando Florida. Billbergia 'Fosters Striate' has really nice thick green and yellow variegation. Plants throw up pups with varying degrees of variegation but the plant never seems to revert to all green. It is a stunning foliage plant alone but it also has very nice and large flower spikes with some of the best Billbergia flowers i have seen.
Billbergia 'Fosters Striate' Is very easy to grow in a pot, you could try it mounted as well, you can grow it outside for the best part of the year here in the UK but it is probably only hardy down to 2 or 3 degrees centigrade, so will need to be bought inside during the winter. It is also best kept out of direct sunlight as the leaves will get damaged in too much full sun.
3 fabulous plants all in gorgeous colours, thank you Andy! I’m so impressed with the size and health of the plants - am addicted now! I’m using them to create a bromeliad chandelier along with a stag horn fern and hardy tillandsias (again from Andy), which is going to look stunning when finished. Thanks so much! Susan
Lovely, healthy plants, packed extremely well and quick service. Top marks!
