This is a revised edition of our highly successful book on growing and caring for bromeliads.
'Growing Bromeliads' describes how and where to grow over 200 species and hybrids, and details ten of the most popular genera with brief notes on the more unusual genera. Descriptions of the native habitats for each of the ten genera are given, enabling you to provide the right growing conditions for any of these species within these genera. The book gives an interesting overview of the Bromeliad family, including a brief history of Bromeliad cultivation. There are also separate chapters on how to propagate these wonderful plants and on their unique botany. All of this is written in straightforward language with scientific terminology kept to a minimum.
This new updated Third Edition has been revised by experienced Bromeliad growers, and includes:
- a new chapter on Australian hybrids;
- ten new species;
- new chemical treatment for bromeliads; and
- recent name changes.
