Janice, I'm totally jealous! I've got three different varieties and none have bloomed yet. That's beautiful.

Mark, I wish I could tell you a secret to get yours to bloom, but I have no idea. This one came as a pretty mature plant cut off my friend's. I know maturity does help them to bloom. Thank you. My mother believes in fertilizer and a strong threat. She is little, but gets results. 😂💗 @maldavis

Thank you, I agree. The flower slowly puts out little blue flowers around the head of this flower. The last one really didn't fade for about a year. I was amazed. @midnightgardener @laneygarden @gjones

@heatherdirtyhands the plant has flowered more than once, not from the same piece. That does and pups replace it. ❤️

comment
heatherdirtyhands

Thats why I asked because i know they die after flowering but it has pups and then they flower @lovestogarden

13w
comment
lovestogarden

Yes, @heatherdirtyhands. The life cycle is mature plant will flower and then it grows pups. Once the pups mature enough to survive one their own, the mother's leaves die off and then, when the pups fully mature they will flower..... And it continues. 💖

Can you tell me how long it takes to mature? Do you repot as it grows or remove pups?

13w
comment
lovestogarden

@Flicka, I am not really able to tell you. My friend gave me a big hunk of her mature plant and I have just put it in this pot, like two years ago, and stood back. I fertilize and water. Sorry I can not tell you more. I don't remove the pups, as I like a huge clump. I will be putting this in the ground when I determine where I really want it. 💞

Flicka

Wow, I’m surprised she was able to do that. I thought you could only remove pups. I have one also, I have removed 1 pup, my pot seems to be getting smaller. I don’t know if I should keep removing pups or put the plant in a larger pot.

@Flicka, my mother has me split her Bromeliad in half with a sharp shovel and only keeps half of it when she decides it is too large. Both sides survive wonderfully. And I usually keep the extra. 😁

How pretty do yours bloom every year I have a few a different species but I seem to get blooms every other year. Do you have urs in sun. Mine look healthier in shade but maybe it’s to much shade??😊💕

comment
lovestogarden

@terrimclaughlin, this sits in a spot that gets diffused to direct sun for about five hours a day. If you do move yours, make sure to do it slowly so as not to sunburn them. This blooms for my neighbor (mine is a cutting from her's) every year, hut only because it is a mature plant.

@mardel they need to be planted in a well drained medium. Orchid mix would be excellent. I use a loose bark mix.
