Congratulations To
Gary Douglas Turner
The Cryptanthus Society Webmaster!

The Cryptanthus Society has been using an iconic logo, known worldwide for the last 28 years. At the 2012 Board of Directors, meeting they decided that it was time to change the design. The Cryptanthus Society offered a three year subscription to the CS Journal to the individual who comes up with the winning logo design.

Contest deadline
was extended to August 15, 2013
at which time the CS Logo Judging Committee voted on the winner. This winner and his or her concept was announced at the Saturday, September 7th, 2013 banquet of the combined SWBG, Greater Dallas\Ft Worth, Cryptanthus Shows in Dallas Texas.
Congratulations to Gary Turner for submitting the winning design!

As with every BSI World Bromeliad Conference since the founding of our Society, which are held every two years, the Cryptanthus Society will be an important, visible part of the activities.

This world-class event includes huge plant sales (with hundreds of old and new cryptanthus hybrids and hard to find species), a combined BSI and CS Rare Plant Auction featuring unusual plants from the biggest collections of cryptanthus in the World; there will be seminars by world renown speakers.
The BSI WBC Bromeliad Show promises to be a large show. Besides the numerous awards from the BSI, the Cryptanthus Society is offering 9 special awards to Best in Show Horticultural and Artistic entries.

Already several tours are scheduled to some of the local nurseries and private gardens in Hawaii.

Host hotel room rates and other information will be available soon.

Do you have extra time available and a wish to help us succeed and grow our organization? Volunteer to serve on one of our committees, or projects, or if you have special talents - let us know!
