Billbergia nutans Rare Form is a very choice and rare variety of Billbergia nutans. I was gifted this plant 10 years ago from a collector in Europe. The closest id i have for this plant is that it is a form of Billbergia nutans.

It is a very nice plant it differs from the common B. nutans in that it has a much tighter and more compact plant with rigid leaves and a taller and more upright flower spike. It also has longer stolons or above ground rhizomes than the normal Billbergia nutans.

It likes medium to high light levels and seems to do very well in a peat and potting bark mix with low nutrient and some grit added.

Here in the second picture is a good sized pup, a clone from the plant in the first picture.

Plant supplied bare root.

Excellent plants

I am new to collecting air plants and most of my collection comes from my first order from Andy. Those plant were splendid and arrived in perfect condition. I am branching out, trying something new with this order and again, splendid plants arrived in perfect condition. Thanks, Andy - really pleased.
