Botanical name: Billbergia pyramidalis Family: Bromeliaceae (Pineapple family)
Foolproof Plant is a bromeliad from Brazil. Every summer it blooms without fail with that strange orangey-pink flower. This probably is the origin of the common name.

The succlent leaves form a large vase, and produce mostly red flowers with yellow and purple highlights. The flower looks like a torch.
