Yes! You can regrow a pineapple by its top! I got excited when I learned about this because I love pineapple, so I thought I’d give this a try. I will post updates on the progress of my pineapple. If you would like to give this a shot, follow these simple instructions.
- Buy a ripe pineapple from your local market. The greener the leaves, the better. Mine have a little yellow/brown, but some have shared it’s okay (we’ll see).
- The best way to remove the top of the pineapple is by twisting it off. Once that is done, you will want to peel off the leaves on the bottom … About an inch up the stalk.
- Make sure to cut excess fruit, this will cause the pineapple to rot.
- Fill a container with enough fresh water to cover the peeled back base of the pineapple.
- Place your pineapple top near a sunny window for 2-3 weeks. You will see roots growing several days later. Make sure to change out the water every couple of days.
- Once your roots have grown, plant your pineapple top firmly in potting soil.
- Keep your pineapple plant near a sunny window or outside when it’s warm. Keep the soil most, but avoid over-watering.
- Your pineapple should fully grow in a couple of years, but should start seeing some progress in a couple of months.
I hope this is simple enough and don’t forget to share if you are giving this a shot 😉
