Bird Rock Tropicals

Bird Rock Tropicals (I have visited this place and it is vast and beautiful) specializes in air plants, but has a prodigous selection of Bilbergia, Cryptanthus, Aecmea, Neoregelia, and Guzmania. Sign up to receive notice of "Web specials."


The Florida Council of Bromeliad Societies. Well, this is one of the best picture sites on the web. If you see a Vriesia saundersii you are sure is mislabeled, check here for some great pictures and win the bet with your friends.


We order twice a year from Russell's. If you have ever come to our booth at the Navy Pier spring show or to the Fall Bromeliad Society Show at the Chicago Botanic Gardens, those high quality air plants are from Russell's. They also carry a variety of florist-quality Guzmanias, Vriesias, Cryptanthus, Aechmeas, and Neoregelias.
