It has become noticed by Bromeliad Society International (BSI) that help is needed in getting people like ourselves accustomed to many of the bromeliad names, particularly the new ones. So, a presentation is being prepared in that cause and we in San Diego have been asked to help. That is the purpose of our meeting in May. We’ll show the draft that BSI has put together (example of single page below) and you get to critique it and offer suggestions for changes to the text, the images and overall.
Come with your ideas; don’t be shy to ask questions or suggest improvements. This will be a free, interactive program.
