The Beautiful Bromeliad

The Beautiful Bromeliad are a unique group of plants with amazingly colored and patterned foliage along with vividly colored flowers. Bromeliads have evolved in some of nature's most challenging conditions, from desert to rainforest to cloud forest. Spanish moss is a Bromeliad. When you eat pineapple, you're eating a Bromeliad. Air plants are bromeliads, too. In this episode, we discover the amazing diversity of bromeliads. We meet experts, breeders, and collectors who share their best tips and secrets for growing bromeliads in our home gardens. We also visit an enormous greenhouse operation that specializes in bromeliads sold in nurseries, supermarkets, and specialty stores across the country.
