This plant is very stoloniferous, hence the variety name. In shade the plant is green with silver bands, in higher light it should turn a reddish color with the bands.

Does well mounted epiphytically, or in a hanging basket. Has a great inflorescence, but it doesn't last long, as with other billbergia's.
