Plenty of Choices
What's not to love about a plant family with 2700 members? Bromeliads are an easy plant to grow and love in our region. Maybe you only know pineapple, maybe you have one of those cute driftwood magnets with a Tillandsia in it, but even if you don't know that striped beauty is Guzmania, you can find out. Visit the Web site of the Bromeliad Society International. It's full of identification and growing information.
