MOST BROMELIAD PUPS HAVE NO ROOTS WHEN THEY ARE REMOVED FROM THE PARENT PLANT- ALSO IF PUPS ARE LEFT ON The MOTHER PLANT AND THEY FORM A CLUSTER, YOU WILL HAVE ONE ROOT SYSTEM FOR THE WHOLE CLUSTER-so if you remove a plant there will be no roots on
teh plant.
PICTURED ABOVE IS A HYBRID NAMED FOR ME- bILBERGIA > MARY JO KELLOGG

  ANOTHER TYPE LIKE THE CYANEA , AND THE VRIESEA SPLENDRIET FORM THEIR OFFSPRING IN THE CENTER OF THE PLANT INETEAD OF  BASE.NATURALLY THESE HAVE NO ROOTS  WHEN THEY ARE REMOVED-

 BROMELIAD CRYPTANTHUS  AND  ORTHROPHYTUMS ARE SMALL BROMELIIADS THAT GROW  IN SOIL- THEY BLOOM WHITE FLOWERS , WHEN THE FLOWERS PALE AND TURN BROWN, OFFSPRING IN FORMED WHERE THE FLOWERS WERE- THEY STAY THERE WHILE THEY GROW- WHEN THEY GET BIG ENOUGH TO REMOVE, THEY BECOME LOOSE ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY FALL OFF-THESE HAVE NO ROOTS-

  ROOTING THE BROMELIADS IS EASY- PLACE THE BASE OF THE PLANT IN SOIL, WATER AND KEEP SOIL DAMP, NOT SOGGY - SHADE AND WARMTH IS NECESSARY-

  STOLONIFEROUS BROMELIADS ARE BROMELIADS THAT FORM OFFSETS ON A WOODEN STEM FROM THE MOTHER PLANT- THESE GROW IN NATURE IN TREES AND WILL NOT USUALLY HAVE ROOTS WHEN THE PUPS ARE REMOVED- REMOVE THE STOLON OR PART OF TEH STOLON SO YOU CAN MOUNT THESE SO THE BASE OF THE PLANT WILL TOUCH WOOD- ROOTS ARE FORMED AT  BASE OF THE PLANT, AND DO HELP FEED THE PLANT - WITH SOLONIFEROUS PLANTS YOU NEED WATER INSIDE TEH PLANT AND ALSO ON TEH ROOT SYSTEM THAT WILL ATTACH TO WOOD AND GATHER RAIN WATER THAT FLOWS DOWN THE TREE OR WOOD PIECE.

 BNILBERGIA , GUZMANIA,AND  VRIESEA ARE NOT STOLONIFEROUS AND CLUSTERS ARE ON ONE ROOT SYSTEM- PLANTS REMOVED FROM THE CLUSTER WILL NOT HAVE ROOTS, BUT WILL ROOT WHEN YOU PLACE THE BASE IN SOIL.EASY TO ROOT- THEY WANT TO ROOT-  DONT KEEP WATER INSIDE THE PLANTS, AS THEY WILL ROT AND NOT ROOT.

PLEASE DONT LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FOR A BROMELIAD SELLER THAT SHIPS YOU ARE BROMELIAD WITHOUT ROOTS- ITS OKAY,  THAT IS THE WAY  BROMELIAD PLANTS  ARE DIVIDED-
