Hi,   

I have borrowed Rauh' Bromeliads for Home, Garden and Greenhouse, and Steen's Bromeliads for the Contemporary Garden, and like both.  Figured I would buy them.

I see there is a Bromeliad Lexicon by Rauh as well, but can't find out much about it.  Someone said it was the same as the above Rauh book, plus indoor bromeliads.   Does anyone know if it is much different. 

I also know Steen has a Connoisseurs Bromeliad book, and wondered if it was better than his other book, or largely duplicative, much different etc?  Does anyone have both?

thanks Mike

Mike,
  If you're a Tillandsia guy then Rauh's book is the one, no question. If you're one of those "other" (You are not allowed to view images.

people who grow Neo's and Aechmea's then Steen's book is the one.

Hi Mike,

I bought Werner Rauh "Bromeliads for home garden and greenhouse" way back in the 70's. It eventually disintergrated and was lost. Very well worth it although lots of the plants have been reclassified and moved from one genus and family too the other. Keep double checking with Bromeliad Cultivar Register and the  Bromeliad Photo Index. And do not forget about the vast resource of wisdom on the Bromeliad and Airplant Forum.

Good Luck,

Conrad
