Cut it all off. They will typically rot anyways. Let it grow fresh new ones that are accustomed to the terrarium environment.

That's what I do, hack em off. Those are thin, stringy dirt roots. You want the brom to re-grow thick, heavy roots for attachment.

They'll be fine. You might find it interesting that epiphytic bromeliads obtain most of their nutrient via their foliage rather than the roots themselves.
I cut the roots today, and discovered some of the broms have developed small pups since I got them... so i guess I am doing pretty good!!

Thanks for the advice...
