what to do with this plant

Thank you reading my post.

I think this is a type of bromeliad. My son brought it home from school when he was in third grade. He is 30 now! So I hang on to it for sentimental reasons.

It used to be an upright stalk that never made a flower.

when it got too large and started to droop I would take a seedling from the pot and start a new one. I've tried larger pots and smaller pots over the years. The soil is cactus blend. The location is a southwest facing window but not a lot of bright sunlight.

So now I haven't repotted in a quite awhile and this sorry looking plant is what I have. Can anybody help me to start a new plant and keep it happpy? Thanks for any advice.

It looks like succulent to me.

I agree with hotdiggety. Try over in the Cactus and Succulents Forum.
