Bromeliads are a diverse family of plants that includes the ever-popular “air plants," feathery Spanish Moss, and the tasty pineapple, with many variations in between. Their showy flowers can be described as exotic, extraterrestrial, or unnatural in appearance, often due to bright color combinations and shapes. In nature, bromeliads occur in North, Central, and South America, and are found in habitats ranging from rain forests to deserts. With such a wide assortment of growing conditions, it may seem an unfathomable task to grow these fascinating plants. Surprisingly, most bromeliads are easy to grow, once you understand their needs.

On Saturday morning, April 23rd, from 9-11, bromeliad enthusiast Bryan Chan will share his strategies on growing the different types of bromeliads. Bryan is an accomplished grower of bromeliads, cacti, and succulents, and he is a longtime member of the San Fernando Valley Bromeliad Society, Bromeliad Society International, Los Angeles Cactus and Succulent Society, and several additional plant societies.
