Most  folks make the mistake of throwing away a bromeliad after it blooms   
(usually the Guzmanias and Vriesia types) because they think the plant  is  
dead....but in fact all bromeliads pup out.  Eventually the  mother plant  
will die 
back (some genus sooner than others), since it  only blooms once.   As the 
foliage dies back, you take that  off.  Eventually they will form a  clump.  
You can 
either  leave the pups on, creating a large clump of  bromelads....or you can 
 
take them off as they mature more and produce new plants   (specimen).   No 
problems with black spot or anything else  with  Broms.   Members of our 
society 
with greenhouses  report problems  with scale, and others say that squirrels 
love to  eat theirs, but I've  never had any problems.  Once I learned more,  
they 
have literally  become the easiest plant I have to care for.
