Have any of you grown pineapples before? Using the tops?
I saw a pin on Pinterest and it showed you what to do and it looked really simple… so I tried… it didn’t work. Now I’m like a woman possessed and I am desperate to crack this pineapple growing malarky! So tonight I am trying again. And I have done more research.
The first key part was establishing what pineapple root buds look like – I guess these are essential because no root buds = no roots are going to grow. I found this picture from this website – Rick’s Woodshop Creations – which also has some really useful information on how to grow a pineapple.
So I’ve pulled a load of leaves off my pineapple stalk and I found some roots and some root buds:
The pineapple stalk is now in a jar of water on sunniest windowsill in the house (the one where I germinate my chilli seeds… that’s another post) and within 2 weeks I should start to see some roots appearing. Hopefully.
Has anyone else successfully done this?
If so how did you do it? Any help would be gratefully received!!!!!
Thanks 🙂 xx
