tips on bromeliad care and pup separation
ive had this bromeliad for nearly a year. i bought it after it finished blooming. it has 2 pups atm, 1 pup 5 inches tall and the other 3 inches tall. i dont know how to separate pup. the parent is 7 inches tall. i wouldnt mind repotting the plant but im unsure of the pot size given the pups nor the soil to use. im willing to progressively go to a pot size maximum of 8 inches once the current pups get to full size. atm the plant is in a 4 inch pot.
when i do have to seperate pups, how far do i have to dig to get sufficient soil and roots out without damaging either plant?
i do have some orchid fertilizer though no bromeliad fet specifically. i havent yet fertilized mine. bromeliad fertilizer are 17 8 22 while orchid fert is 19 31 17. id be willing to use the orchid fert only if the phosporus wont burn or damage bromeliads.
