Florida Bromeliad

Florida Bromeliad

The Bromeliads are a family of monocot flowering plants comprising 3,170 species and found mainly in the tropical Americas. A pineapple is a bromeliad. By 1900, Florida grew more pineapples than any other place in the world, including Hawaii. By 1910, Hawaii became the number 1 place in the world for pineapple growing. Florida would continue its decline in prominence as land became more valuable for other uses.
