February 16: Cryptanthus with Keith Smith.
Keith Smith has been a member and board member of the Sacramento Bromeliad Society and the BSI for over 40 years. He has a large greenhouse in Auburn in which he grows far too many bromeliads and other genera. He provides many of the Society's plant tables. This, unfortunately, has not helped create space, as he is unable to discard even dying plants in order to produce pups. He has presented numerous programs to the Sacramento Society, usually describing the plants and culture of a specific genus.
