Bromeliads are attached with beautiful flowers and this is what makes them so unique. The flowers, which are pink in color, can bloom for many months at a time. Unfortunately, over time, these beautiful flowers will fade away and die. These plants also thrive the most with direct sunlight, so it’s important that they face the sun. The plant itself will generally not bloom, therefore watching the beautiful flowers for our can be both interesting and somewhat sad at the same time.
- After the flowers die on bromeliads, they may bloom again, but it may take a lot of focused work to get them to rebloom.
- Care of the plant after it has initially bloomed, is focused on getting the mature plant to grow pups successfully so that they can be separated from the original plant and flower.
- Wait until the pup reaches one third of the size of the parent plant to cut it away in spring and then follow specific steps to get it to grow successfully and flower.
“Care of bromeliads after flowering is focused on getting vegetative growth and new pups so you can separate them for future blooming plants.”
