Anyone know about this growth? So I haven’t paid to much attention to my pineapple plant this year. Actually thought I was going to lose it due to all the rain we had this year. Pulled out a couple of weeds in the pot to find these at the bottom.
@ambitiouswolf I am so thankful you posted this. I have a newly rooted plant and would have never thought to have taken it in for the winter. It would have never survived our Midwest winter. THANK YOU!
@petitelake make sure to bring it in well before you get frost. They don’t like it cold. The first plant I had I put outside to early and the colder weather killed it. Now it’s mainly outside during summer. At least in the 50s at night before I take it outside and back in when it drops into the 40s at night
@Psithurism I didn’t use a pineapple out of the grocery store for my top. I had bought a pineapple plant that had the pineapple already growing. When the little pineapple was ripe I cut it off. I cut the top off the little pineapple and planted it in a small pot. The top was still a lovely green when it was planted. If you scroll back on the pics you will see when I first planted it.
Noticed my pineapple leaves are turning yellow. Found that even In This heat when all my pots are going bone dry for some reason it was very wet. I don’t remember what soil I used at the time. So I have repotted it with cactus dirt. I hope it will have a come back. 🤞
@petitelake This is my pineapple top. You can scroll through the pics to see when I started it. Mine was the top of a little pineapple I cut off of my first pineapple plant. And I put it straight into the dirt.
I don't know if you follow brightcolour but she is growing one with air rooting I lost my pics of doing them this way she was interested in this method. There really good and mine didn't get store size but it was super sweet. Yours look really good and healthy
@terrimclaughlin. Thanks. The first plant that I bought had the pineapple I used the top of for the second plant. It was a small pineapple. I don't like pineapple so I didn't try it. I got the plant originally because my husband loves pineapple 🍍. I think he was afraid to try it. 😆
@ayemjack. Some people of grown them inside. If you have a window that gets a lot of sun you could try it that way. I have to bring mine inside before the first frost. Started mine inside. And it was inside for time I planted it in fall to late spring of this year.
I repotted my pineapple top. The mother plant unfortunately didn't survive do to me putting it outside to early and cold weather killed it. But this plant is the top of the pineapple that grew on the other plant. I didn't realize how much it had grown until I looked at the first pic I took when I planted the top.
