what to do with last year's bloom?
I got my first bromeliad in bloom last year. After the blooming season, the flower stalk has become dehydrated, losing its color, and brittle. However, the flower stalk is still in tact. Will the new bloom sprout from the old one's bottom up by itself, or do I need to cut the old one down? Will it even bloom this year? How often does it bloom, once a year? Thanks
