This plant typically lives about 10 to 30 years and only blooms once and then afterward dies. However, suckers are produced and the plant continues to grow from the same root system.

....only blooms once and then afterward dies.....

Well ..... words for the above from me. But a great capture/narrative Jeff.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

The same with bromeliad and similar species, Jeff.
Glad that the human kind hasn't copied this behavior, 😁 !
Fine capture however.

Would be an occasion to see one bloom.
This one appears to be thriving

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
