I was emailing recently with Pamela Koide-Hyatt, owner of Bird Rock Tropicals, and she shared a link to a San Diego PBS program called A Growing Passion.
Nan Sterman hosts the (just under) 30 minute episodes and one called The Beautiful Bromeliad recently aired. The image below is a screenshot I took from the episode, it's Pamela's display garden at the World Bromeliad Conference which took place in San Diego in 2018...
Nan attended the conference and shares some drool-worth bromeliads. In addition to coverage of the conference there's a short a tour of Bird Rock Tropicals and a look at a San Diego area garden with lots of bromeliads. It's a fun show.
Oh and you know those Guzmania (aka the supermarket, or mall, bromeliad) that all seem to bloom at the same time? It's because they're gassed!!! Seriously. I had no idea. Watch the video here.
