I have a bromeliad that flowered and produced 5 pups. When do I separate them from the mum? And I read the mother plant will die after this, is that true? I feel like it isn't, but if it is true I'll be like legitimately upset.
While I'm at it with the questions... Do you think I could get away with planting them outside my greenhouse in zone 9b? It got like 27-28F at coldest this winter on just a couple of nights. My friend up the street grows her bromeliad (huge one) outside, but they're protected from frost. Could they take the cold winter night temps as long as I cover them for winter? Maybe another solution would be to plant them in the spring and dig them up in the fall and move them in the greenhouse? I don't wanna set them outside in pots lol.
