Answer: In my experience these plants are not particularly demanding, asking only average light, temperature, and watering although as most bromeliads do, these plants prefer an airy yet humid atmosphere to do their best. The coloration in the foliage of the Zebrina plants I have seen was quite attractive, a rosette of somewhat tubular leaves with a gold vertical banding with a silvery cross hatching of sorts. The flowers are interesting although I suspect beauty is somewhat in the eye of the beholder. The rather large plants do make a nice foliar accent, and the form is similar to that of the other billbergias.
