Air plants

We have 2 lovely air plants (Tillandsia bergeri from the Bromeliad family) growing off our super productive lemon tree. After a quick google i learnt that air plants come from the same family as pineapples and the leaves are used as a herbal supplement to treat pollen allergies 🙂

Our plants are home to a multitude of other species including a massive furry caterpillar that looks identical to one of the leaves. These plants seem to have been connected to the lemon tree for many years and are happily growing and floating over the lemon tree branches. We are moving house soon and will miss the air plants in our new home. Does anyone know of a way we can take a small cutting without harming the parent plant and ensuring the cutting survives?
