Aechmea Fasciata

Anonymous added on April 29, 2011 | Answered

My cat bent the flower on my Aechmea fasciata, and it appears to have died. Can I cut off the flower and have the plant grow a new one? And if so, how/where do I make the cut? Or do I leave it alone and will the plant just grow a new flower itself?
