I cannot survive without "TILLANDSIA II" by Paul Isley. Pricey, but spectacular pix and very informative.

Gee, you'd think I'd be entitled to a free copy, wouldn't you?   Cool

The one book I refer to more than any other is "Blooming Bromeliads" by Ulrich and Ursula Baensch.  It's not perfect, but it's the probably most comprehensive treatment available of both species and hybrids.  In fact, you might even call it the baenschmark against which all other brom references are measured.  Sorry, couldn't resist...... Roll Eyes  Unfortunately, it's also out of print.  Oh well. 

What I REALLY can't live without is FCBS:   http://fcbs.org/index.html

I agree Lisa, I was lucky to get BB's the day it came out. For sheer photo enjoyment Esteves' books are great. Most informative would be Rauh's "Broms for Home, Garden and Greenhouse". I use Derek Butcher's DVD that consists of all his notes and more for the Tillandsias.

Hmmm, I just got a nugget of information recently.  Speaking of Tillandsia books, there might be one on the way from a certain expert in our area.  Me-thinks it might be a little more technical and interesting than some other Tillandsia books...

She said she was working on it and it sounded like it was actually in the works, not just all the hypothetical beforehand stuff.  Fingers are crossed.
