my bromeliad has 2 pups, one being nearly as tall as the parent plant. i transplanted it from a 4-5 inch pot a month or 2 ago. ive noticed the inner stalk leaves of the parent drying up . im not too sure if the pot is too small or its time for the pup to be separated from the parent.
how do you go about separating the pups safely without damaging the roots too much?
