Program for March 15, 2017

Not your Mother's Neoregelias

When many of us started to collect bromeliads, importing species from Central and South America was an exciting experience. We never knew quite what to expect as we opened our boxes. Our choices from nurseries were limited to few common species and to hybrids developed by the early pioneers, some of which are still available today.

This program explores how neoregelia hybrids have developed over the past decades, starting from what now seem like a handful of somewhat dull species. There has been an explosion of neoregelias of every imaginable size, shape and color. We will explore why the genus neoregelia has become a firm favorite of enthusiasts and the public.

Keith Smith will present a slide illustrated talk on neoregelias including tips about growing them for best form and color and where to find them.
