I have been growing a bromeliad like that since 09, every year it puts up new pups and continues on. It spends the summer months outside on vacation. Easy to grow! Beautiful pic!
Do you remove the new pups or leave them attached? Do they bloom?
Evelyn says she lets them grow together until the monther dies (usually around summer) and then she cuts the mother plant out. Also, she takes her Bromeliads outside in summer and believes that helps them thrive. If you want to know more, email Evelyn at the address on her comment…firstname.lastname@example.org
This is gorgeous Marian.
I’ve never tried to grow Bromeliads. But while perusing around Martin’s a couple of weeks ago, they had some blooming that were BEAUTIFUL! The flowers were a mix of purple and pink spikes. I was very tempted to take one home but surprisingly resisted.

Susan–I have to admit that I don’t keep mine year-round. I purchase a couple for the holidays and then send them to compost heaven.
Can’t go wrong with pineapple.
