Center dies before it flowers.
Be gentle as this is my first post here.
I live in Manchester UK.
I've got a number of Bromelia growing on a window sill in my kitchen. All sourced from the original plant which was purchased from B&Q a few (5? ) years ago.
Now, although I can get the plant(s) to grow, multiply. I have 9 or 10 now, I can't get any to flower propperly.
They grow. The centre leaves turn red, there is often a spire that starts to grow from the centre of the red roset. But then the spire just seems to rot and die.
I've tried different water levels, tap water, rain water..
The only thing I haven't tried is moving them elsewhere.
I don't know the variety. The card was given to someone else as the plants were bought in a pack of 3 with only two cards. So I gave the other plants as presents and kept the 3rd, without the card.
I'm desperate to get a successful flower from these as the missus us getting tired of all the 'green' on the windowsill.
Any help is much appreciated.
