Fascinating World of Bromeliads
Bromeliad Presentation and Sale at Biedenharn Museum and Gardens
Friday, June 27 Noon - Free
Michael Seal will introduce attendees to the fascinating world of Bromeliads Friday, June 27 at noon in the Welcome Room of the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens, 2000 Riverside Drive, Monroe, LA.
Bromeliads compose a large diverse family of plants including Pineapples, Spanish moss, and Tillandsias which are commonly known as Air Plants. Large bromeliads have fabulous foliage and sport bright colored blooms which can last for months. They prefer shade which makes them great house plants. The smaller Air Plants grow on just about anything, are easy to care for and multiply freely.
A number of Bromeliads of varying sizes are on display in the Biedenharn's Conservatory in ELsong Garden. The talk is being held in the Welcome Room which is directly adjacent to the conservatory. Participants are encouraged to visit the conservatory before and after the presentation.
Mr. Seal will demonstrate how to attach air plants to wood and other items for display. Since many bromeliads grow on tree branches or on rock they are good candidates for mounting to any number of surfaces. Tillandsias are often seen attached to sea shells, drift wood, or bunched together to make living wreaths.
A variety of Bromeliads will be available for purchase after the presentation.
