Dividing Bromeliads

babalu_aye(zone 9b - St Pete FL)May 6, 2012

Hi all, I've got several clumps of bromeliads that I'd like to divide so that I lay them out in a more pleasing design. Most of them are blooming right now. Since they are in bloom, if I divide them now will they still put out new pups after they've finished blooming? Or would I be better off waiting a few months until the new pups are coming out before redoing the garden layout?

Thanks, John

Here's a picture of one of the clumps:

Any time you divide them will cause new growth to start.
