Hello, I have Bromeliad house plant that is producing a pup. The mother plant tho is rotting very quickly and the pup is growing very slowly. It’s been stuck at about an inch for weeks now. What can I do to help him grow faster?
Thank you

If you haven't fertilized in a while you might try a water soluble fertilizer at half strength. The parent should die slowly and completely turn brown so you may have time. The pup should be 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the parent before removing it.
