Hi everyone,

Iím still trying to catch up on all of the posts I havenít yet read and I came across the pic of the Billbergia NOID from Mike.

Mike Ė I think I may have the same tall growing plant which was identified for me some time ago by a well known brom grower and international judge of many years. She said it is Billbergia ĎKipí and this identity was confirmed by two other Billbergia growers.

Although yours seems to have much brighter colours, this could purely be a result of growing in a warmer climate with better light. Unfortunately, although itís mentioned in the BCR there are no images of it; all thatís recorded is that itís a Grace Goode hybrid of a crossing between Oeserís Bigeneric Hybrid x Bill. Catherine Wilson.

Iím attaching two old picís (non digital) of a couple of mine, however as itís just coming into flower now, I will be able to get a better pic of the flowers which I will post when they open in a week or two.

Hi to everyone else, love all of the pictures, please keep them coming.

All the best, Nev.

1st pic is Billbergia Kip grown in high light and the second is grown in low light
