Yeah is right, Noreen. Tropiflora is one of the best. And may be the best source of named bromeliads in business. Selby carries their stuff in its plant store. We try to get to Tropiflora proper two or three times a year, mostly for the succulents, the fat plants, and the odd and weird plants they have--such as the bull's horn acacia. At least once a year [maybe twice] they have an open house whoop-t-do and invite other local vendors to set up tents on their property, hire a Caribbean steel drummer, and party on into the weekend. It's a great event and we find zone 9, 10, and 11 stuff we never knew existed.

Kitty, thanks. We, that is the Bromeliad Society, use Tropiflora in
Sarasota, Fla. Dennis Cathcart, the owner, is very much into Bromeliads. He has
really great prices, and top quality plants that one doesn't find anywhere
else. They put out a Cargo report that is excellent, even if you don't want to
order, the information is wonderful. There is a subscription fee, however if
you are a customer it is free. They carry other things besides Bromeliads,
lots of terrarium plants, some orchids, succulents, etc.

Thanks - terriic, concise info. I'll print that out as a cultivation sheet
for people who ask what to do with these exotic plants. Hmmm... I wonder if
I could locate a wholesaler so we could sell them? Know of any?
