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.
There ya have it!
An ‘almost free’ house plant!
Happy growing my friends!
