Here is one of my pineapple plants. It's 1 1/2 years old.
This is how I grew my plant from a pineapple we bought on Kauai. First, I cut the top leafy part from the fruit. Then I removed the first few rows of lower leaves...
It's now ready to plant in soil. I use a "cactus potting mix" but, I think any good potting soil would be fine. I put this plant into a 8" clay pot and set it out in a sunny place in my backyard. If it gets chilly where you live, it's best to bring your pineapple in for the winter. It will be quite happy in an area of your home that gets sunshine.
I got my fingers crossed that one day my plants will produce fruit. In the meantime, my pineapple plant brings some extra aloha to my home!
As always, feel free to post a comment or question! In a few weeks I'll do a post on plumeria cuttings. Happy planting friends!
