BILLBERGIA ‘Beth Whitley’ ? / Chism S* 2011

Mature rosette to 30cm. diameter x 30cm. high. Scurfed, bronze green leaves striated cream and tinted pink in strong light. The original plant appeared in the middle of a large pot of Billbergia nutans owned by the registrant's friend Beth Whitley.. Later the registrant separated a group of variegated plants and propagated them. At first the rosettes were noticeably shorter than the original all-green clump. Now the next generation is taller and even more nicely variegated. We await a blooming photo to confirm its species status. Reg. Doc. 4/2015 by Sam Chism.
