How Easy it is to Grow a Pineapple!

Pineapple plants are ridiculously easy to grow. In fact, many gardeners say that it's difficult to fail! The plant can grow indoors, and is quite pleasing to the eye without fruiting. However, if it's the fruit you want to gain from the plant it will need plenty of sunlight.

Cut the top off any pineapple you buy from a fruit store and trim off the fleshy part on the bottom. Stand it in a jar of water covering the bottom to allow the root to strike. Once you see roots starting to form, plant it in a pot or in the garden. I've even had success in leaving out the jar & water step. It takes about 12 - 18 months to harvest a fully formed fruit.

When the fruiterer asks you if you need the top of the pineapple cut off, now you know why... it's a free pineapple plant for them!
