I got this plant years ago from my Mom and it split into new plants. She explained it likes to be crowded but I'm worried I'm not caring for it properly and feel like I need to separate it. Any advice would be appreciated.

They look like bromeliads. Can you take a photo from the top?

Could also be a Sansevieria trifasciata 'Hahnii'...?

It is a type of Sansevieria. It does like to stay tightly potted so it doesn't inadvertently get overwatered.

Not sure why the new plant looks wilted. To keep them together or to divide them is a personal choice. If you do opt to divide, try to avoid disturbing the roots as much as possible and keep the "mother" plant in the same pot it is in now.

I thought about Hahnii but somehow it just looked too big
