Who We Are?

he New York Bromeliad Society is one of 54 affiliates of the Bromeliad Society International. From the United States, Central and South America, Hawaii, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Europe we are all dedicated to learning about the culture and biology of the beautiful bromeliad family of plants. Our meetings are generally held on the first Tuesday of the month at Ripley-Grier Studios at 520 8th Avenue (between 36th and 37th Streets, 16th Floor). Stop at the Reception Desk for exact meeting room. Meetings start promptly at 7pm. The Society does not meet during July, August and September. We exchange information at monthly meetings where instruction is offered by expert growers and

plants can be swapped or bought at bargain prices. We also have several major plant sales a year for members with hundreds of species and hybrids at below wholesale prices. New York Bromeliad Society members receive our monthly bulletin, BROMELIANA, with articles about the techniques of growing bromeliads and color photos.

In nature bromeliads can be found growing from as far north as Georgia down to the southern end of Argentina in the widest range of climates and conditions at sea level, in rain and cloud forests and on mountains as high as high as 13,000 feet. That is why these remarkable plants from the tropics and subtropics are able to adapt even to the indoors. We in New York have become specialists in growing and blooming bromeliads in our apartments and homes. Join us in the fun of learning to grow and flower these easy, hardy houseplants.
