Maybe the tallest of the Billbergias, reaching a stunning 6 feet tall, at least potentially. In cultivation more than 3 feet tall is unusual. The foliage is light green, stiff and forms a few-leaved upright, tubular rosette. The inflorescence is erect to leaning and forms a lax panicle with few, large, greenish flowers. A very rare species in cultivation. Found in nature in Espirito Santo and Rio de Janeiro states of Brazil as a lithophyte. We have observed this species growing on the tops of seaside cliffs in full sun in restinga habitat.
