Cograts on being a mom and having a baby!!!! Ha ha!!! I'm jealous I wished i could grow a pineapple plant here, I love pineapples!!! When I went over to Lowes the other day I noticed they had pineapple plants with baby pineapples on it. Don't know why they have them up here to cold to grow, and I don't think enough sun to grow inside in winter here!!!! Tammy
The Mama is from a pineapple we had around Christmas time last year. I had to "nurse" her along all winter (plastic veggie bag covering her) because it was too cold and she wasn't doing anything but sulk in her pot. I put her outside after the weather stayed above 60Ã‚ÂºF. After she finally started to grow some roots, I repotted her and put her in the NKG pathway where it was sunny but sheltered -- so I guess it took about 2 months for the pup to grow. We just had another pineapple -- this one is an organic one and a different variety, so I've planted the top from that one too.
