Planting A Pineapple



 Did y’all know that you can take this and turn it into…
 This? And that this will eventually produce…

This?

Yes, I’m talking about turning your average, ordinary grocery store pineapple into a tropical showpiece within your home. A plant that is not only impressive but will WOW! you with a succulent pineapple in 24 months.




 Planting a Pineapple

 1. Cut the top off of the pineapple, leaving about an inch of flesh below the greenery.

 2. Place the top in a dish of water, with the water only half way up the flesh, for three days in a well lit window.
 3. Plant the top in a large pot with some really good potting soil. If you do not see any root sprouts when you go to plant the top don’t worry, it will still take root. That’s it, you’re done. You have planted a pineapple.

In 24 months (sounds better than two years) it will look like this. Once your pineapple has been planted please make sure that you do not over water it. This tropical plant likes to be watered about twice a week straight down the middle. The dirt should be damp or moist…not saturated and fertilize well. This is an indoor plant, so if you do put it outside during the summer, be sure to keep a weathered eye on it. Now if you live in a tropical area unlike myself, the directions will probably change for indooor outdoor care. This is also a wide plant, make sure you have the room for it before you commit.


 You will have an actual, large, utterly delicious pineapple in 24-36 months.
