Recently I learned how to grow a pineapple plant by Googling it, then looking it up on Youtube. It’s quite simple really.
First, you need a pineapple with some leaves on top. Not a lot of leaves. Just a few green leaves will do.
Secondly, you cut the top off the pineapple. Do what you will with the remainder of the pineapple. You could juice it, freeze it or eat it straight or on pizza.
Thirdly, you twist the leaves section against the slice of pineapple section in opposite directions until the pineapple section comes off.
Then you pull a few leaves off the base of the pineapple plant revealing small little roots. Then you place it in a jar of water, submerging the roots only.
You leave it, changing the water daily – until the roots are a couple inches long.
Then you plant it in either a pot or in the ground.
My pineapple plant is in a pot and it likes to be in full sun and catch all the rain.
One thing I did to help my pineapple plant grow is I talked to it and I wrote it notes encouraging it to grow. This is based on the Masuro Emoto water experiments.
If you read this, you will understand my line of thinking. 🙂
