From Deutsche Bromelien-Gesellschaft e.V.
Welcome to the website of the German Bromeliad Society
The German Bromeliad Society (Deutschen Bromelien-Gesellschaft e.V., or just DBG)
is an association of plantlovers who are engaged with the fascinating plants
of the pineapple-family, better known as bromeliads.
What are bromeliads
The Bromeliads (also called pineapple plants) are a plant family which exclusively is found in America containing approximately 3000 plant species. No other family includes as many bizarre looking, fascinating and inspiring species. Especially the Grey or White Tillandsias enjoy great and growing popularity. Even limited space is no impediment to successfully cultivating many of the most beautiful species.
Yet Bromeliads, included Tillandsias, are no more demanding than ordinary room plants, provided that one bothers to know a bit about their habitat and tries to “understand” their needs.
Spring Convention of the Deutsche Bromeliengesellschaft
