Talk: Growing Bromeliads in Southern California
Cristy Brenner, President of Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society, will give a talk and demonstration that will introduce you to a selection of bromeliads and offer tips on growing them in pots, trees or rock gardens. You'll learn about repotting, separation of pups and mounting Tillandsias (air plants) and other epiphytic Bromeliads.
Cristy is a retired Saddleback College geography teacher who has been addicted to Bromeliads since 1995, when a colleague invited her to a meeting of the Saddleback Valley Bromeliad Society in Mission Viejo. As a geographer, she has visited all of the continents, but in recent years has concentrated on traveling to regions where Bromeliads are located.
