Growing pinneaples...


By cedille


Did you know you could grow pineapples with the top of the fruit you buy in the shop? Well, I didn’t, and I certainly didn’t know it was that easy! I found great instructions on the website below and I am having my first go.

First, you get the the flesh off the leaves…

Second, you trim the leaves off, and let it dry for a couple of day…

And then you pop it into a glass of water, changing it every couple of days, and wait for the roots to grow!

You’ll have to wait about 3 weeks for that to happen, so I’ll update you when I get some results!

I've heard of this but never tried it. Good luck. I hope you'll be picking pineapples soon ;o)
