It was doing OK for a while and as you see it grew a new baby but now its leaves are drying out. I took one piece of it out and put it in a glass container. I've been spraying them with water instead of watering but not helpful.

It is normal for bromeliads to 'die' after they bloom. You can leave the 'pup' and remove the dead parent leaves or detach it and repot.

Many main plants die after blooming and/or produce a pup or baby.

Are you positive it didn't bloom? Some species/cultivars have very small insignificant blooms that are almost unnoticeable. Some can also offset without blooming.
I have a hohenbergia that offset into 4 pups without blooming at all.

I didn't see anything like a bloom. The original plant that I got these from consisted of many "bunches".

As I said in my previous post some bromeliads offset without blooming.
