Media Library

One of the benefits that bromeliad societies receive by joining the BSI as an affiliated society is the use of the BSI media program library. The programs listed below are available to societies for use as a program during their meetings. With the rise of digital cameras, programs will only be available in digital format.

There is a $10 fee to download each program. To access the presentations from the secured links below, a username/password combination must be obtained by contacting the Media Library Chair. If you want the program on a CD contact the Media Library Chair: The fee is $15, postage included.

Program descriptions:

  1. Genus Aechmea. Species and cultivars in popular cultivation. 120 slides of blooming aechmea varieties.
  2. Bromeliads A to Z. 119 slides of bromeliads from all the genera.
