Bromeliad Plant

My bromeliad plant has a tall exotic bloom. It is now dying but the leaves are still green. Should I prune it? Will it come back next year? It had a purple bloom on it this year.

Yes, when the bloom begins to wilt and look unattractive, you can prune it off. Each bromeliad plant blooms only once in its life, but watch for pups, or baby bromeliads, that may grow on the parent plant. They can be separated and will eventually bloom, as described in this article:
