How do you take care of a dying bromeliad plant?
- Cut off the flower when it turns brown.
- Keep the plants moist but not soggy in well draining soil.
- Keep up the relative humidity.
- Provide plenty of bright yet indirect sunlight.
- Check your leaf axils for pests.
Likewise, how do you revive a bromeliad plant?
Trim off the plant's bloom when it starts to turn brown by cutting it with pruning shears or scissors where it joins the center of the plant's cup. Most bromeliads bloom only once, but removing the bloom helps the plant redirect energy to staying alive a bit longer and growing pups.
Furthermore, how often do you water a bromeliad plant? once a week
In this way, how do I know if my bromeliad is dying?
One way you can be sure your bromeliad is turning brown because it's drying out is to check the pups. If they're healthy and looking good, then the plant is on the way out. If you're keep the growing medium too wet, then the lower leaves will turn brown and ultimately turn mushy.
Do Bromeliads only bloom once?
Most bromeliads bloom only once in their lifetime. Instead, bromeliads that have bloomed will begin to form offsets or pups. Pups are exact clones of the original plant. While it not possible for your existing bromeliad to bloom again, by properly caring for the pups you can enjoy your bromeliad's blooms over and over.
