Bromeliads for Home Garden and Greenhouse
By Werner Rauh, etc. and Peter Temple

Hardback, 1979, 431 pages, good condition

Translated from Professor Werner Rauh's comprehensive two-volume work Brornelien (German). This landmark work The Bromeliad Lexicon of 431 pages contains 134 coloured plates, 315 black and white photographs and 90 line drawings from the original German volumes. The book is exciting because it covers the entire field of bromeliads, dealing with their botany, collecting in the field, acclimatizing, seed sowing, growing and propagation. This book will be of great interest to the general reader for the vivid accounts of collecting these plants, as well as a mine of information to the amateur and professional grower alike. The colour illustrations are enhanced by clear and precise line drawings. The Bromeliad Lexicon should provide an exciting stimulus in the expanding field of horticulture and highlights the fantastic world of these highly-coloured plants whether in leaf, in bloom or in fruit. Most bromeliads are so easy to grow and are able to live without attention for weeks at a time on air alone. They can be grown as house and room plants, in greenhouses or, where conditions are suitable, in the open air. Contents include: Part I Growth and Culture - Bromeliads in their Native Habitat, Morphology of Bromeliads,Growth Form. Branching Habit and Life Cycle, Leaf Arrangement and Leaf Form, Roots., Inflorescence, Flowers, Pollination and Fruit Formation, Fruit
