Rather a sad looking plant, it has been under a bench for years and is starting to
suffer (I have now split it and repotted it). It came to me as an unidentified Aechmea
on 8th March 1987 and that is about as much as I can say about it. It has survived for many years, it has never flowered, and
I have a suspicion that it is actually a Billbergia.

Well, I have no doubt it is really a Billbergia. It still hasn't flowered, but a division in the Agave house
is growing well, and anything is possible!

I think this is actually Billbergia pyramidalis though I will take a year or two to change the label.
