    On October 23-24, 2021, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will host Our Annual Bromeliad 
Show and Sale sponsored by the Bromeliad Society of South Florida.

     PLANTS FOR SALE: South Florida has a great number of nurserymen who propagate, hybridize grow, and sell bromeliads worldwide.  There will be approximately ten vendors selling their unique types of bromeliads and related merchandise.  As has been the case in years past, each vendor has different plants available for sale and can provide growing tips to keep new acquisitions in great shape. The sale will also feature the Members’ Sale booth where great bargains are to be had on locally grown plants.

     SEE OUR EXHIBIT: Be sure to check out the Annual Show - Exhibit, a judged competition open 
to all in the auditorium. Many rare plants will be in competition and on exhibit.

     RARE PLANT AUCTIONS: On Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm in the auditorium there will be a lively auction of plants chosen from the growers’ and nurserymen’s collections, plants you will never see in a big box store. Make your best bid and take home some very unique plants. Come early and check these plants out.

     STUDENT ART SHOW: The Bromeliad Society of South Florida is very proud to partner with the Miami-Dade School District in presenting a judged art show of very talented middle school students.

     Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156. Join us from 9:30am to 4:30pm both days. Look for the show/sale signs.
