When it comes to separating a bromeliad offset, often called a pup, from the mother plant, many people develop a case of "separation anxiety." I know I did. While it isn't terribly difficult to do, there are some basic guidelines to follow in order to achieve success.

|I have a bromeliad that has bloomed and is dying. She had two pups attached. I've waited until they are about 1/3 her size and have separated them together as one and re-potted. Is it best to go ahead and separate them from each other or can I let them take on a little strength together before I separate those two pups from each other?

|Everybody likes something different but I'll express my opinion on this. I like it when they clump and fill in a pot. I would leave them together.
Welcome and wish you luck with your bromeliad!
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.
Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
