catalogue of Bromeliads used for various projects by - Lloyd Godman
is a catalogue of bromeliads used by Lloyd godman for his various installations
and photosynthesis projects - the collection of plants he accessed in
New Zealand from 1996 - 2004 was collected from a wide range of sources,
while most were brought from Greens Bromeliads, some were also donated
by the Dunedin Botanical Gardens. Later in 2004 these plants were either
sold or given away with his move to Australia.
Lloyd is at present re-establishing his collection where he now lives
in Melbourne and utilizing the plants for airborne gardens and the Hybrid project.

Family: Bromeliaceae - Subfamily - Pitcairnioideae
This subfamily contains the most ancestral bromeliads and many resemble the grass family from which they evolved. Almost all are terrestrial and rely on an extensive root system for their moisture and nutrients. They are generally spiny leaved and have dry capsules with small wingless seeds.
