BSI Seed Fund

The BSI Seed Fund acts as a clearinghouse for the exchange and distribution of bromeliads by seed. This is an excellent method of obtaining many uncommon or even rare plants that have not found their way into common cultivation yet. With a little patience, you can have the satisfaction of growing a plant from germination up to flowering size. Please be aware that there is no guarantee that the seeds are as described. The BSI seed fund has been around a long time and experience shows that most seeds are as described, however, it's not uncommon to find that some offerings contain hybrid seeds. Conditions of the BSI Seed Fund are as follows:

  • Seed may only be ordered by members of BSI.
  • Packets [at least 20 seeds] are US$1.00 each.
  • Each order is limited to two (2) packets per species.
  • Some seed are in short supply. Please include a substitution list; otherwise a credit memo will be issued that may be exchanged for seed or cash.
  • Any exception to order limits or packet size is listed by that item.
  • Donation of seeds are gladly accepted.
  • Trade of seed will be handled as maximum of two Seed Fund Packets sent to you for each LARGE packet of seed that you send in.
