A Quick how-to. A little off topic from bonsai but, it’s my blog.

We have a pineapple.


We grasp the top


Twist it off


Peel off the bottom fronds or leaves


Until you find roots


Fill up a pot with good soil,
And fertilize now


Stick pineapple top into soil


And twist and push down


Water well

The pineapple is a bromeliad and likes to have the crown full of water. It does grow roots too so water and fertilize both.
In a short 18-24 months you should get your own pineapple. The only pest I have seen is fire ants. They like to make their nests in the pot. Just keep it off the ground.
Protect from freezing and harvest your fruit before the animals do.
