The Friendship Plant, Billbergia nutans or Queen's-Tears is a bromeliad native to South America. This plant makes a wonderful ornamental house plant. It tolerates under-watering, over-watering, heat, and some cold (but not freezing temperatures). The plant has foliage similar to that of a Day Lily with long, green, arching foliage.
The Friendship Plant produces spectacular flowers combining colors
of pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple that bloom in February.
Called the “Friendship Plant,” because it is easily propagated
allowing it to be shared with friends.
The Friendship Plant produces small plantlets, called “pups” that are produced from rhizomes at the base by the mother plant. Individual pups can be removed and transplanted into new containers.
These will quickly proliferate to fill their container. You can then divide and transplant them into new colorful containers and gift them to your friends!
