Terrestrial Bromeliads

This workshop will be an overall introduction to the terrestrial members of the family bromeliaceae. Bromeliads are  new world plants that includes more than 3500 identified species and thousands of hybrids. Bromeliads have, in recent years, become more and popular in Southern California gardens because of their ease of care, and their water wise habits. But the terrestrial bromeliads are little known. These are the bromeliads with true roots and which require soil to grow and thrive. This workshop will include an overview of the major terrestrial genera, how to grow, divide and propagate the plants.

Teacher: Robert Kopfstein has been a grower of bromeliads for forty years. He is a (nearly) retired professor of English and reading who has been involved with the San Diego Botanical Garden first as a trustee (for nine years) and now as a docent.  He is a master judge with the Bromeliad Society International, and is a member both of BSI and the San Diego Bromeliad Society.
