I’m not sure if the flower is dying or if it’s normal #679095

Asked January 13, 2021, 9:25 AM EST

The flower of this plant has been brown/dry for many months and I don’t know if it’s part of the natural cycle of the plant (not sure what kind it is!). Just wanna know what to change in my care.

Unfortunately, our group cannot answer your question because of your location outside of Maryland. Please contact your local Cooperative Extension office for assistance. A good way to find your local office is to search for ‘cooperative extension’ plus your county name.

(Until you can reach your local office, we can say that this plant looks like a Bromeliad, in which case this flower dieback is perfectly normal and the plant may soon begin "pupping," producing baby plants around its base.)
