Bromeliad
Q.

bromeliad spreading out rather than remaining upright

Zone Crown Point, Indiana 46307 | Anonymous added on September 24, 2019 | Answered

This bromeliad has always grown upright and tall. It has new growths appearing, but is now flattening out with some leaves hanging over the pot edge. I've had it many years, and have done nothing new re: watering or care, and it remains in the same spot as always. Is it dying? I have no capacity to send photos, as I don't have a computer. A relative is sending this message for me, and will pass on any response.

After it flowers, the parent plant produces offsets and begins to die. However the pups can be harvested and grown to produce more flowers.
