Maybe the most popular and most sought after Billbergia species ever. This stunning cultivar has been the plant of choice for Billbergia hybridizers ever since its introduction by Bob Whitman in the ‘80s. Collected on ‘Kautsky’s Mountain’ near the town of Domingos Martins, it was originally describes as a new species; domingosmartinsis, but later made a cultivar of vittata.
With proper (hard) culture this plant becomes tightly tubular and its spiny, banded leaves show a great deal of white blotching. The inflorescence is amazingly showy. An outstanding plant in every way.
