Do air plants die after they bloom?

Tillandsia flower at maturity and will only bloom once in their life. The mother plant will start producing baby plants (or pups) when they are nearing maturity. She will then die off, but each pup will grow into a mature plant and flower, although this could take years.

Like other plants, tillys have leaves, roots and also produce flowers. The difference is that air plants don't need soil to grow. Each leaf on an air plant is covered in specialized scales known as trichomes, which have the ability to absorb water and nutrients.
