The Seminole Bromeliad and Tropical Plant Society will be holding their semi-annual plant sale this coming weekend, August 16 and 17, 2014. It is one of the largest sales of its kind in Central Florida, drawing plant enthusiasts from throughout the region.
This plant sale not only features thousands of bromeliads in many genera, but also a broad assortment of tropical plants. You can find beautiful gingers, heliconias, orchids, succulents, ferns, aroids, and tropical edibles. There may also be plant-related merchandise like plant stands, slat baskets and other growing accessories.
