Looks like the final pup count for Mister Odean will be 9. The last 3 pups will remain with parent (back left in photo) until Spring.

Let's see if these 2 (formally flowered last summer) Aechmea 'Alverez' are capable of producing more pups after producing 2 each.

Here's an interesting test for you. These four offsets are from N. Treasure chest.

Mother plant here -- Thumb of 2020-03-08/sunkissed/85695c gave me three offsets at one time last year. I removed the two larger offsets Feb. 2019 and potted them up...left the smaller offset on mother plant, and she produced another one (so 4 total).

This photo taken Feb. 2020 shows the two first removed last year, top half of pic potted in separate pots. The bottom two are the two I left on the mother plant, still in original pot, mom has been cut out. You can see how much bigger the two left on the mother are compared to the two taken off last year. 18 inches wide compared to 12 inches wide, also a bit different in looks, both grown in same light outdoors.

Sherri, What size % were the 2 "removed" pups compared to the mother plant at removal?
I am also noticing a size reduction in my test findings of early pup removal among another interesting happening that I will share photos and thinking on soon.

These are them Feb. 2019 in four inch pots, right after removing them. They were 1/3 size of mom, and peeking through the top leaves of mom, the other pup was much smaller that I left on her, and once these removed the forth pup emerged. Certainly the pups get more energy when left on mom longer. The pups left kept growing at a much faster rate, even surpassing the two first removed.
