Billbergia sp. Suculenta is an unusually succulent pink-blooming Billbergia, hardy to light frost. It is polymorphic and grows from a juvenile through three stages:

  1. short-leaved compact succulent rosette
  2. tall, thin leaves
  3. a typical tube billbergia.

It is an unidentified species that has been grown for decades by collectors of succulent plants. Some experts think it might be a hybrid of Billbergia nutans, but nobody is really sure.

Billbergia sp. Suculenta is quite hardy to cold and thrives outdoors in the coastal Mediterranean.
