There are more than 3,000 recognized species of Bromeliads including the pineapple and Spanish moss. Bromeliads offer an array of colorful plants that are easy to care for and available in the marketplace. Further, Bromeliads make handsome companion plants to orchids as the two often grow side by side in the wild.
Bromeliads for Home and Garden provides a comprehensive overview on Bromeliad cultivation. Brilliantly illustrated with over 100 color images, this straightforward, easy-to-use guide focuses on the most popular species. Author Jack Kramer has personally grown each one of the 200 plants featured in the work, in climates as diverse as those found in Illinois, California, and Florida. He writes with clear, practical information that gardeners of any skill level can use.
