http://www.michaelsbromeliads.com/default.asp probably has more billbergias than anyone. Michael Kiehl is a great guy who purchased the home and nursery of the legendary Don Beadle several years ago. Don was known as "Mr. Billbergia" and left behind most of his collection. (...Don is alive and well in a "different" life.)

I second that! I've been to Mike's greenhouses and they are awesome. He knows so much about bromeliads, and he even talked to me about acquiring all of those billbergias. I bought a really cool one from him that blooms red; I even asked if that was normal before I bought it. Hate to buy one and realize the "sample" one was a fluke. Mine hasn't bloomed yet, but I'm hoping it will soon!
