    Are they in the pot alongside the original plant ? or hanging out in mid air from the original plant ?If in the pot the kids are the ones that will bloom , the original plant will die off in time .You can seperate some of them ...divide .
    The other type offsets will also bloom but I don't know if the main plant dies or not , I have one that grows like that and the original plants is still going .
    I don't know where you live , it might be better to wait till spring . Sorry, I don't know a lot about them , maybe someone that has more info. will post Gin

    Default Bromiliads

    From what I understand, the parent plant will die off once the "pup" can sustain itself. My bromiliad is still going (the bloom has since dried up and is done) and I don't have a pup yet on it....I am getting a little concerned. I have my tilandsia which does have a pup developing even brfore it has gone into bloom.

    It will make one or more , sometimes it takes quite awhile , my original plant will still have leaves next summer , they go a little at a time . I have a couple that keep the original plant for a long time .. No worries about yours Gin
