Separating Neoregelia

This is a collection of small Neoregelia hybrids that have taken up home in an abandoned birdbath. They can be left to multiply or can be thinned to create another pot or grouping.

The Neoregelia have been removed from the birdbath and have been inverted. You can see the black rootball and the many woody stolons. The new plants have been growing on top of the old plants and stems. Now you can start dividing. Cut any woody stem.

Here are four plants which were cut off of the original mass. You could have cut off more depending on how many you want in your new pot or hanging basket.
