Planting And Care

Light: Pineapples prefer full sun, so give them plenty of light.

Water: Water profusely throughout its life. Pineapples are truly tropical and do not thrive in cooler, drier weather, although they can withstand short bursts of rather cold weather.

Soil: A rich typical potting mix will do fine, but make sure the drainage is immaculate. Pineapple should be watered from the top like other bromeliads.

Fertilizer: Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer throughout the growing season.
Pineapple Care
Pineapples are easily propagated from either the fruit itself or the mother plant.

A successfully rooted pineapple plant will start to grow within weeks, provided it gets plenty of warmth and adequate moisture. Once rooted, the pineapple will typically take 24 months to produce mature fruit, although this length will vary depending on your conditions.
