Jay ThurrottAugust 17: James Thurrott. Many people view the Bahamas as a tropical paradise but the residents of the islands face a number of interesting challenges ingrowing bromeliads there. We'll take a look at some of these and visit gardens in Nassau as well as observe entries in a show hosted by the Horticultural Society of the Bahamas.
Jay grows over 800 varieties of bromeliads at his home in Port Orange, Florida and has been growing bromeliads since the 70’s. A lifetime member of the Florida East Coast Bromeliad Society (FECBS), Jay is their newsletter editor and has served as secretary, vice president and president of that organization. He has served as his club’s representative to the Florida Council of Bromeliad Societies (FCBS) for many years and is currently Chairman of that organization
