February 20:     Speaker: Tropiflora’s Dennis Cathcart
 Topic: Always the dreamer and adventurer, Dennis started Tropiflora in the early ’70s as an outgrowth of a bromeliad collecting hobby. A “hobby gone bad” he says. Following years of collecting reptiles and traveling the Caribbean and Latin America, Dennis discovered bromeliads or they discovered him; and, the direction of his life was changed for evermore. Collecting and exploring were always his first interests in the plant world and over the years he and Linda have visited over 25 countries on more than 100 trips and expeditions. Together they have made travel, adventure, plant exploring, speaking, writing and the nursery business a way of life. He and Linda are now passing their passion for plants on to their children, to take Tropiflora into the second generation.

Call Sandy Roth 305-301-0306 or Mike Michalski 305-279-2416 
 to offer your culinary masterpiece that you elect or wish to 
 deliver to the December 18th Holiday Party.

 Plant Exchange at Holiday Party
 It has simple rules. Wrap a bromeliad so that the naked eye cannot 
 discern  the
plant within. When you arrive with such a plant, you 
 receive a ticket – a la raffle style. The master ticket holder will call 
 out numbers in an order – hence the first called will have the pick 
 of one of the plants wrapped; and the second will have one pick of 
 the
remaining plants, and so forth. If you really want to engage, 
 bring wrapped plants, or even more, and you will receive more 
 tickets, which means you will have more wrapped plants to blindly 
 pick up.
