@petitelake Laura, I've tried growing them from store bought pineapples but they never seem to root!

Potted this two days ago @mojosmomma , the roots grew 3-4 inches in water. Not sure why some leaves turned brown but there is new growth in the center. #pineapple-propagation #pineapple

@ambitiouswolf yep. It's a Del Monte Gold pineapple from the grocer. Swipe right on the pic and you'll see the top in water.

I didn’t put mine in water like that. Mine went straight into a pot. It might be adjusting to pot life. Could be shock. Is it getting enough sun?
