I have a Bromeliad
I guess I have been watering it wrong. I have been putting the water in the container that came with it when it gets dry or feels dry but it is still green and healthy but the center I called the bloom what happened to it. I have new growth at the base on each side. Do you mean you pour water down the flowering center of the plant? Do you transplant this plant? if so what type of soil should I get to do the transplant.

Yes, you will pour water into these cups. In your case, the plant is already producing its replacements. Once these flower, they will die off replacing itself similar to its relative, the pineapple.
You will not have to focus much on the main plant anymore. You will now be waiting for the pups to grow to at least 1/4 of the size of the parent. Then you will transplant these. It is best to use orchid or cactus soil, but some still have decent results using a light potting soil.
