Considered to be a choice houseplant due to its beautiful and long blooming flower-heads, Bromeliads are exotic, colorful plants that are easy to grow. This tropical-like plant is offered in a variety of sizes and colors. The colorful spikes last for several months and the inconspicuous little flowers will eventually appear overtime, creating beautiful, smooth foliage and heavily barbed leaves. Once the spike has bloomed, it will die and will never bloom again. The spikes must then be cut back to allow the plant to multiply.
The “mother plant” will produce “pups” which will eventually turn into another plant. These “pups” can stay on the original plant or may be cut out to produce a new plant. Make sure you get as much of the original root system as possible because each pup will have its own bloom and will eventually produce more pups.
