    I have massive clumps of Billbergia nutens all over the garden, in the ground and in pots, all in semi-shade positions. One clump is about 35 years old! She began life as a tiny plant from Woolworth's in Buckinghamshire, moved to Germany for some 25 years then onward to Portugal. :spinning:

            That's fantastic Pete. I watered one less this winter and I think it may have survived for the first time.
