Bromeliads usually flower once and then develop offsets or pups, and then they die. Keep the pups attached to the mom for as long as possible so they'll have a chance to develop their own root systems. Once they have you can pull or cut them from the mother plant and pot them up on their own. Best wishes with your new plants!
