Billbergia DARTH VADER


This Bromeliad is a hybrid and recent release, a very hardy and tough plant, it prefers part sun and part shade but can live in really good filtered light like in a shade house.

To get the upright single stalk, this plant should be grown large enough to develop offshoots or "pups",  and the pups off the sides removed, we don't recommend cutting leaves off the sides unless you are removing pups.

This plant is best watered when dry and you can also water down the middle where water is stored by bromeliads. We recommend rain water or mineral water to avoid residue building up on the leaves as it will show because they are black.

Below is a picture of the baby plant you will receive.
