grown in strong light and direct sunlight
New hybrids are introduced every year. Bromeliad shows and sales occur throughout the state frequently, usually within an hour's drive of wherever you are. Bromeliad collectors, as with many hobby enthusiasts, are readily willing to give you all the information you need ( sometimes a lot more) to get the right plants for the right garden places. The Bromeliad Society of South Florida ( http://www.bssf.org/) is the oldest bromeliad society in the country, meeting in Miami every month.
As with so many plants, there are lots of choices, and lots of information to help with those choices. To qoute an old mentor of mine from 40 years ago, "Use your options ! There's lots of them !"
