It’s really easy to grow your own pineapple! Sure, it may take 2 – 3 years before you see a fruit pop actually out of the plant, but it’s still really neat to replant the top and watch it grow.
How to Grow a Pineapple from a Pineapple
You’ll need one regular pineapple, chop off the top, remove about 1″ of the leaves to expose the stem, stick that in water until roots form, stick it in the ground and watch it grow! It’s that easy.
Detailed instructions with pics:
1 – Start with a full pineapple and chop off the top. Find something delicious to do with the actual pineapple.
2 – Either pull or cut the pineapple fruit from the stem, then pull off the leaves until about 1″ of the stem is revealed. It doesn’t need to be perfectly clean or smooth.
3 – Stick the pineapple stem in a glass of water. I usually put mine in the kitchen window. Keep an eye on the water level and make sure to refill if it gets low. Little roots will start to pop out in a week or less!
4 – Once you see roots, you can plant it! It will do well both indoors and outdoors. All I do is stick mine in a sunny spot in the yard. I water it the first week and then don’t worry too much about it. The second pic is after about a year. They aren’t very fast growing! The last pic is one I swiped off Google because mine haven’t been planted long enough yet to see a pineapple. But some day! And until then, they look good as part of the landscape and are very easy to care for.
