The flower on my bromeliad has turned brown. What do I do?

Bromeliad flowers last longer than on most plants but eventually will start turning brown. You can then cut it off with scissors or a sharp blade. That plant will not bloom again but it will send out offsets (pups) near the base of the leaves, and these may flower.
