Please go to the “Who We Are” page and open the various copies of Bromeliana. You will see there the meeting subjects and while you are looking at the copy of Bromeliana, you can get a sense of what the NYBS is all about. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


We intend to conduct a number of 3 hour classes on all aspects of bromeliad culture on to be held on Saturday mornings. This would include a slide survey of blooming bromeliads, growing techniques and hands-on potting of a bromeliad and mounting of two or three air plants (tillandsias) with the assistance of the instructor for each person who attends. The fee for this class would be $35.00 and it would include a one-year membership fee. The plants would be the property of the new member. If you are interested in attending such a class please advise us when you would be available to attend such a class by email to Herb Plever,
