San Diego, California.  Mediterranean climate.  Humidity is too low [especially in our no-rain summers] for the cloudforest plants I like, but there's the challenge!

New Port Richey, Florida, USA (Tampa Bay Gulf Coast) 28N Most winters see 3-5 nights around freezing or slightly below, not enough to damage bromeliads. The past two winters saw -2/-3C on several nights which did damage 50% of my broms in the yard. I have about 100+ varieties planted both front and back and growing up trees. All broms returned from these rare freezes except one, and I didn't even like that one! Average Jan high is 72F. Average July low is 77F. Rainfall 50" a year with a distinct dry season from Oct-May, then June-Sept average 7-8" per month. Greg

I live in San Clemente, Ca between LA and San Diego it's a small beach city that overlooks San Clemente and Catalina Islands. Bromeliads do pretty good here. Not Hawaii good but not bad.

I live near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which is just north of Miami. Lots of native Tillandsia species here, as well as a few other Broms.

I'm in San Diego, close to Mission Bay, relishing June Gloom - overcast all morning, lazy sunshine in the PM.

Happy Bromming - Dave

Sunshine Coast hinterland in between Beerwah and Landsborough. I have been here 2.5 years after moving from bayside Brisbane. It hasn't stopped raining since I moved, all I want is for some normal average weather, I guess that could be too much to ask for. Cheesy

New brom addict, look forward to interesting discussions.

Thanks to the forum team for running this delightful show.
