Houseplant: Queen's Tears 01.09 (Bilbergia nutans)

Several years ago I took some offsets from my original Bilbergia nutans. This is one of those babies, now a mature bromeliad. It has produced flowers before but not in such chilly temperatures as we have had recently. I was a way for several days last week and expected to find it looking very sorry for itself when I got back. It is quite a toughy.

What a lovely plant, Xela - new to me. Is it easy to grow?

Couldn't be easier, Barbara. Take a look at the notes in my 'My Garden'.

I've just had a hunt through - what is it under in your list, Xela?
It's probably me but I can't see it. Sorry to be a pain.

Oops, sorry. I am trying to list my houseplants together, so it is listed as 'Houseplant: Queen's Tears'
