Just finished dividing my aechmea fasciata!!!
Never thought I could do it, but managed to achieve this with the advice given to me on this forum.
The babies are all happily ensconced (I hope) in their pots & sited beside the parent plant, as it appeared to be in a good position for it. Now, all I need to do, apart from keeping their cups filled, is to keep my fingers crossed. They looked very healthy when divided. Again, many, many thanks, it was much appreciated.
