Tips for starting a pineapple.


From what Ive gathered you just take the leafy part off the fruit, and let it dry, then put it in water until it roots. Anything else I should be doing?

I started mine by just pulling off the green leaves til I had about an inch or two of white showing then cut the bottom off making sure there was no pulp left on it. I then stuck it in dirt but some people do stick it in water first.

I already had some roots, so I tore off a handful of leaves and put it into some dirt.

Keep the soil moist but not soaking wet.

After two attempts I got one to grow. I put it in soil and left it on my deck for a few months. One day I saw a small sprout had come out the side. I was expecing the plant to continue to grow from the center. Now the plant is very large. It hasn't fruited yet and has only been growing about 1 year. I'm not sure how long they take to fruit.

I have three pineapple plants that I started, one simply in dirt, the other two in a very small amount of water- applesauce container small. The first one grew a pup, however the original pineapple top rotted and died from being left in the rain, I started it in august so had it outside. the other two I Replanted after roots started to grow and are much bigger now.

I was successful in starting three pineapple plants so far by following the advice in this video.
