Bromeliad plants generally only bloom once from the original plant, but will produce pups on the sides that will bloom later in life. Remove the spent bloom from the original plant. Your plant should produce pups/new plants at the base of the original plant. These will bloom in time. You can either leave the pups on the parent plant or remove them and plant in their own containers. Be patient as this will take some time. You probably will not see flowers on the pups until next year or the following year dependent on the variety.
