Follow up to Cheuh re blooms

Oops, forgot to mention. Bromeliads bloom only once in their lifetime. The new pup will produce a bloom when it reaches adult size which may take one year or more. Then it produces pups and so the cycle continues.

Some Deuterocohnia have perennial bloom stalks, and will bloom two or three years on the same inflorescence.

RE: Follow up to Cheuh re blooms

They can bloom for seven years on the same stalk

RE: Follow up to Cheuh re blooms

Yes, there are a few exceptions to the one bloom per rosette rule, but most beginners aren't growing these plants.

This thread was a follow-up to this one. Not sure why a new thread was started, but in general, when an old inflorescence turns brown, cut it off. That plant won't bloom again (unless it's a Dyckia or a Deuterocohnia).
