|Hello! I've checked your library of questions about "Queen's Tears" to find explanations of "Billbergia Nutans" only-I've found an ad in a mag for "Queen's Tears-Billbergia Zebrina" saying it's a colorful/unusual house plant-long, fluted, silvery-white leaves which are heavily cross-banded and turn a dramatic purplish bronze. From those leaves grow graceful, downward curving spikes holding a mass of gorgeous, long-lasting blue & white flowers. You can watch nature @ work as "tear drops" of nectar form on the stigma. The plant is supposed to withstand dry indoor conditions & grow well in light or shade. However, the ad only shows a colored, hand-drawn picture with color & no actual photo of the plant-is it difficult to grow? Care? Instructions & interesting information? Please let me know.
