Billbergia pyramidalis Family Bromeliaceae
Flaming Torch
(Billbergia pyramidalis)

Originating from the West Indies, Venezuela and eastern Brazil region, the colourful inflorescence of this terrestrial bromeliad varies from red through to pink, with yellow and purple highlights.

Like many bromeliads species, the leaves form a tank that collect and hold moisture, as well as catching leaves and twigs, that as they decay provide additional nutrients to be absorbed by the plant. The small catchment of water also provide sanctuary for small frogs.
