Who We Are......


We are a fairly new society, however our ranks are filled with members who have been 
growing ferns and other tropical plants for many years.  We have people who specialize 
in ferns, begonias, orchids, aroids, palms, etc.

This is a fairly unique society in that it brings together groups of tropical plants that grow 
here.  We have meetings that are geared towards ferns, begonias, aroids, bromeliads, 
heliconias, hibiscus, etc.  

The South Florida area is awash in plant societies all vying for the time of the few 
dedicated growers who feel as though they must belong to each and every society 
here.  However, there are more than 25 different plant societies here and members 
belong to multiple organizations.  

We hope to attract people who are curious about ferns, and would like to know a little 
about some of the other plants.

We meet at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden (10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, 
Florida) on the Fourth Monday of every month (except July, August & December). 
December is our Holiday Party and date varies & is for members and their guests only.
