I love this plant! So colourful!
@ublaszko it’s so exotic looking isn’t it 😍
It looks like something out of a hothouse in a botanical garden. Very spectacular. I love it 😍😍
Beautiful with all its colours
@ublaszko would be a good houseplant for your OH 😉
@gjones I get so excited to see the flowers 😂 amazing colours and still shocks me they are happy growing in this climate 🤣
Now that's a though 😉 He's asked me for more houseplants for his home office.
Beautiful plant and photo.
@ublaszko he’s given you license to plant decorate!
Oh, exciting 💕💕💕
@pelly such a beautiful plant, and have 12 more of these flowers to look forward to opening 😁
@lovemygarden65 thank you Marilyn ☺️
@hkyfvr thanks Diane 😊
Most welcome Kerry 😍
@awomanonabike so many flower spikes this year 😁 #billbergia-nutans #friendship-plant
Wow! It looks fabulous. Better than its parent 😉🙄
These are so beautiful when in full bloom!
@awomanonabike think the heat of the greenhouse has helped it no end 💚 will have to send you back a piece 😉😅
@gjones they really are 😍 so colourful and love when they get the curly bits 😅
It really is a wonderful plant. Hopefully you can share it soon, though not with me! 😉
@awomanonabike I already have a waiting list for when it’s divided this year 😂
One of many flower stalks 😍 #billbergia-nutans #friendship-plant

@Sesiltamen thank you Silvio 😊
@awomanonabike 😍 #billbergia-nutans #friendship-plant
Beautiful...and there’s more to come 😃 💗💜💙💛💚
That's beautiful Kerry 💞💞💞
@awomanonabike thanks Jacqueline 😀 they move so fast once they break free 😂 checking its progress hourly I think 🤣
@ublaszko isn’t it pretty 😍
@pelly thank you Jane 😃 they’re the most unusual, stunning flowers 💞
@cyndi I checked tonight and they’re starting to all separate so hopefully the curls will begin soon 😁 it’s an amazing flower to watch 😍
@cyndi most definitely is!
It would be wonderful with time lapse photography 😃😃🤔
@awomanonabike I wonder if something exists online 🤔 everything else does 😅
By coincidence I’ve just been looking at garden cameras (apparently they’re called trail cameras 🤷♀️) and they all seem to do time-lapse 😃😃😃
#billbergia-nutans #friendship-plant #pink
@cyndi I keep checking several times a day in hopes it’s opened 😂 hopefully tomorrow 🤞🏻
@ublaszko it’s so exciting 😜
@Sesiltamen thanks Silvio ☺️
@cyndi I worry I’ll miss it if I don’t check. Like it’s only going to flower for a few hours and vanish 🤣
#billbergia-nutans #friendship-plant @awomanonabike I think it’s going to flower 😁🥳🤗 (I assume the 2 pink stalks are flowers 😜)
Yay! Yes they are. How exciting! 🙌
@awomanonabike I’m so glad 😁 wasn’t expecting it to flower so soon 😍 has done brilliantly in the greenhouse this winter. Thank you Jacqueline 🙏🏻
Me too! You are very welcome. I love having friends I can share my plants with 😘
@awomanonabike it’s even more meaningful at the present time ☺️ hoping I can pass some on myself soon, perpetuate the giving 🥰 It grows incredibly fast 😁
@cyndi I’m so excited 😜 my very own drill bits 😉🤣
@cyndi anyone else reading it would think I’m a crazy person 🤣 I’ll bore everyone with endless photos once the flowers arrive 🤪
@cyndi that’s what I like to hear 😛
Everything is more meaningful Kerry. I’m hoping that, when we get through this, we will be living in a kinder, gentler world 🌍🤞And yes, it is a perfect plant for sharing 💗
@awomanonabike if anything good can come of this then you’d hope it was for people to be better. I truly think many will but sadly there are still a lot of single-minded ones about 😔
We can but hope Kerry. I could say something about Darwin and the single-minded ones but I’d better not 😉😂
After a tough start it’s flourishing 😁 @awomanonabike
It looks great. Just wait until it flowers 😍
@awomanonabike I’m excited 😁 and has grown many new mini plants too!
I can see that. And it looks lovely in that pot 😍
@awomanonabike Thank you so much Jaqueline 😁 the cutting is huuuuuuge! I hope it’ll be happy in its new home ☺️
@cyndi it’s what Jaqueline has hers listed as. I know nothing about them unfortunately
@ublaszko it’s quite a plant isn’t it! 😍
@cyndi it does look quite different to yours. The foliage isn’t as thick and there aren’t spikes on this one. Maybe it’s a slightly different type. The flowers do look the same though 😜
Those have such unique and beautiful flowers. Your plant looks big and healthy.
You’re very welcome Kerry 😘 I may have misidentified mine - I’m no expert. I’ll tag you both in some posts and you can see what you think... @cyndi
Definitely B nutans (not the cross). Also known as Queen’s tears and #friendshipplant which seems very appropriate 😉😂
Very unusual 😍
@gjones fell in love with it when I saw Jacqueline’s photo. She was so kind to send me a big piece of hers and hope I can do it justice 😁
@awomanonabike looks like nutans is the one 😁 great name too! Thanks again 😘
@ublaszko isn’t it! The flowers are fascinating 😍
