Billbergia velascana

7th December 2013

A rare Bolivian species of Billbergia. I know almost nothing about it and generally I include species like that here in the hope that someone out there knows something. I was hoping that this would be from one of the cooler or drier parts of Bolivia.
The bad news is that almost as soon as I got it home it started to rot at the base and two mnonths after this picture was taken I dropped the remaining mush in the dustbin. Sad, but it happens sometimes.
