Armando,

Lovely! At first glance it reminds me of the bloom on Passiflora incarnata (passion fruit vine).

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~!!

BARRYSEWALL,
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.
