Billbergia pyramidalis

Billbergia pyramidalis is a species in the Bromeliaceae family. Bright pink and purple tips glow on their blooms and these bromeliads are found almost everywhere you look at this time. Billbergia pyramidalis specially likes to grow on or near trees that are used as support. After today's rain, these blooms are so bright they glow. Their nick name is "Summer Torch" and they easily colonize a large area just like what you see here around my longan tree.
