Yes, Elie, but before this plant dies, it will produce pups around it's base. These will then grow up to produce fruit and the circle continues! It follows the course of all Bromeliads. Just enjoy it's life, don't worry. It will do as each cell is supposed to. 👏❤

There are many ways to start a pineapple plant. Looks like you are using a pineapple top to start yours

I used the pineapple top to start my plant. I cut the top off. Pulled off some of the lower leaves. And then I planted it in a pot. I put it in a sunny spot. If it is really hot there you may need a part shade spot to set it.

When I was going to do it, I found a video on you tube that showed how to start a pineapple from a top. If you have access to YouTube I highly suggest you check it out if you want pictures.

I am using a top of the pineapple in water to get root to plant it...in my country we have 4 season hot summer and cold winter degrees in winter is about 3 degrees at night and in summer its about 35 degrees does it live in this place or should i plant it and keep it inside home ???? And how much time does it need for roots to appear ????

@ambitiouswolf has given you good information. Remember that a pineapple is in the Bromeliad family. They need moisture on top but must be able to dry out in their roots or they rot.

I am not sure about your weather or temperature, but I have a friend who grows hers inside in a pot. I have always planted mine in the ground without waiting for roots. I have never gotten a pineapple yet. I understand it takes three years.

This looks like a variegated Jade plant to me. I do not know that they are used for anything other than beauty. It is a #succulent and therefore likes little water and lots of sun or light. The white stuff looks like #mealybugs . Rubbing alcohol dabbed on and around them will remove them. #mealy-bug #mealybug-advice #pestcontrol-mealybug Check out: http://succulent-plant.com/pests.html

The mealy bugs suck life from the plant. It just looks like it is from the plant.
