How long does the "axil"/stalk/flower last on a brom? Just curious.

In addition, some have beautiful berries (Aechmeas) and beautiful blooms, the foliage is quite beautiful itself. After a bromeliad has blossomed, it will slowly die over a period of up to one year, but not before it produces three to four pups.

It looks like the actual flowering only lasts a day or so -- http://fcbs.org/articles/foster.htm -- and what remains of the "flower", or the inflorescence, will wither at different rates, perhaps at the same time as the larger plant dies -- http://home.att.net/~Bromeliads/Growing_Points.htm .

Try googling "bromeliad inflorescence" for more information.

Best,

Marcos
