Just got these two
Regarding the Bromiliad 'Blue Tango', for the past couple months here in Wisconsin it is freezing outdoors so I brought my 'Blue Tango' inside so it won't freeze. It of course lost the pretty flower bract and now there are about 4 smaller pups growing on the side of the main Bromiliad.
Do I leave these alone until this coming spring were it becomes warmer outside for me to relocate the pot outdoors? If anyone could inform me, Thanks much~!!
Don't separate the pups until they have at least six (6) leaves each,
by then they should have some individual roots.
Separate them with a serrate knife ,real close to mother plant, and
pot them individually . Good luck.
