As with every BSI World Bromeliad Conference since the founding of our Society, which are held every two years, the Cryptanthus Society will be an important, visible part of the activities.

This world-class event includes huge plant sales (with hundreds of old and new cryptanthus hybrids and hard to find species), a combined BSI and CS Rare Plant Auction featuring unusual plants from the biggest collections of cryptanthus in the World; there will be seminars by such world renown speakers such as Harry Luther, Bruce Holst, Dennis Cathcart and your own CS Editor Dr. Larry Giroux.

Orlandiana '12 will also feature an Art/Media Exhibition and Sale!

The BSI WBC Bromeliad Show entitled "Kaleidoscope of Bromeliads" promises to be a large show. Besides the numerous awards from the BSI, the Cryptanthus Society is offering 9 special awards to Best in Show Horticultural and Artistic entries.

Already several tours are scheduled to some of the largest nurseries and private gardens in Central Florida. We haven’t even mentioned the spectacular other activities and theme parks all within minutes of the elaborate host hotel, the Caribe Royale on World Center Drive in Orlando.

Your hosting hotel room rates are as low as $119 + tax (these rooms can accommodate up to 6 people). Time is running out for scheduling your vacation and planning to attend the 2012 World Bromeliad Conference in Orlando Florida! Actually, the special room rates are only good until August 15th!

Don’t miss out on this dream vacation for the whole family. Go to for more info.
