Bromeliads can be grown out-of-doors in locations that do not go below freezing. However, you ned to have a location that duplicates its native habitat, which is shady with lots of humidity (at least 60%). They should not get large amounts of direct sunlight. The different genera vary in what they need in the way of light, water, etc. You can check out Aechmea, Billbergia, Crytanthus, Dyckia, Neoregalia, Nidularium, Tillandsia, and Vriesea to see what fits your situation best.
