Aechmea requires a humid atmosphere to develop well. Regularly spray water at room temperature on its foliage. There may be some water in the heart of the rosette.

Good to know:

This method to bring back an aechmea may well apply to other Bromeliads such as billbergia, vriesea, nidularium, pineapple, etc.

Cut the flower stem

Aechmea, like many Bromeliaceae, blooms only once.

When the pink bracts are wilted, cut the flower stem.

Other rosettes of leaves appear at the base of the plant as the original rosette withers.

Unpack and divide

When these rosettes are well developed, remove the plant and separate them with great care.

Use a knife or seam to divide them, making sure each part has a few roots.
