Our Next meeting is Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 10:00 AM In Casa Del Prado Room 104

Presentation: "Growing Bromeliads in San Diego County, California"

The presentation was assembled (after an investment of a considerable amount of time) by Dan Kinnard, Scott Sandel, and Andrew Wilson to show how three bromeliad enthusiasts grow bromeliads in the xeric Mediterranean Southern California climate. The locations of the three growers are representative of the areas in San Diego County where bromeliads can be grown outside year around. Some basic considerations for growing the plants in each area are given along with lots of views of the bromeliads in situation as they are grown. We have sent this presentation to Bromeliad Societies that have indicated they might produce their own presentation so that we can see how they grow in their areas.
