"I saw one at a friend's house in Merritt Island, and the addiction was born," said Andreas, speaking about bromeliads, the gorgeous plants that sparked a 20-year love affair that shows no sign of fizzling.
Andreas will be talking about her favorite subject at the Sea Rocket Florida Native Plant Society meeting on Wednesday.

Andreas sees a comparison between tending to bromeliads and working with county commissioners.
"They both can be very prickly," she joked.

Kaye began peppering HUD officials in Jacksonville -- the overseers of Central Florida housing authorities -- with questions and complaints about the Sanford operation as far back as 1996.
"The perception I got from them was that they had more important things to do," she said."Their attitude was, `You again?
