Planting a Pineapple Top, a Photo Journey ~ Cheryl's DelightsPlanting a Pineapple Top, a Photo Journey ~ Cheryl's Delights

 

 

How about a cute little pineapple plant for your patio table?  Ok, I will show you just how easy they are to grow!  All ya need is a fresh pineapple from the grocery store!

 

I decided to do this for the first time over the winter.  My friend Chad found a video on youtube and we went to work.  Our winter pineapple plants are still alive and well living in my garden!

 

Lets go on a photo journey to plant a pineapple!

Twist the top off the pineapple.  Twist slowly to gently remove the top.

Cut off any excess fruit and begin to peal the leaves off one by one; from the bottom,  as close to the center of the plant as possible.

Under the leaves you will find tiny roots. This pineapple has small root compared to the others I have planted.  The roots are fairly easy to spot.

Remove leaves till you are no longer seeing roots.

Place the plant into a pot prepared with potting soil.

Here is a plant that wintered inside and was planted a few months ago in the ground.  All the foliage is new growth.

An ‘almost free’ house plant!

 

Happy growing my friends!
