Greetings to the folks in San Diego. Phil Bunch here in Medellin, Colombia. As some of you may recall I attended meetings there over the last couple of years but am now living in Medellin.

Phil, I will pass on your greeting to the members, nice to hear from you. Is Colombia the bromeliad paradise I imagine it to be?

Greetings to all!

Yes. They are everywhere. Here in city (Medellin) it's pretty much Tillandsia recurvata and Catopsis. Once you get out in to the country around here there is just about any thing you might want.

Phil, is there by any chance Catopsis berteroniana there?

I have not had an opportunity to do a formal ID but I think what we see here in the city is Catopsis sessiliflora.
