I live in Florida. I have always loved to grow pineapple plants along my walk way. I first saw this review and could not believe the $65 base price for these plants. I about fell out of my chair.

I must tell you that I do not have a green thumb. If I have to take care of a plant on a regular basis most of the time I am guilty of neglect.
Once you get a pineapple plant started, it is very easy to maintain. The only problem that I have is that in the winter we do have a slight freeze. I am in North Florida. When it freezes these plants usually turn brown, but then in the spring they will bounce back. Sometimes they do die on me in which I can quickly replace them.
My pineapple plants do not bear fruit. It you live in a warm climate and you want them to bear fruit, you must purchase an additional powder mix and apply this powder as directed. I don't remember the name of the powder but it is very flammable and dangerous. If you purchase the powder please be sure to keep it away from children, heat, and food products as it is very toxic. You will have to go to your local dealer and ask for this type of powder.
If you would like to grow pineapple plants outside and you live in a cold climate you can still do this, just know that they probably will die in the winter. With my secret you can afford to replant.
Here is my secret to growing pineapple plants. I can save you loads of money if you would like to try this. I would never pay $65 a piece for all of the plants that I have. I have around thirty plants!
This is simple. Anyone can grow a pineapple plant. Go to your local grocery store. Go to the fruit section. Find yourself the most beautiful pineapple that you see with the largest amount of healthy leaves on it.
When you get home, cut the tops off of your pineapple. Take the yellow part of the top and plant it in any type of dirt. The green leaves will be sticking out of the ground. I will soon water these plants until the ground is very saturated. I usually plant my top about two to three inches deep. That is all that there is to it! I have never even used a fertilizer.
These are the easiest plants I have ever had. Try and remember to water these plants often just until you see that your leaves start to grow.
I usually start my pineapple plants early spring. I would recommend starting them late spring if you are in a colder climate. I have safely covered a few of my plants in the winter and they were fine, but remember, I live in Florida.
You pineapple plant needs quite a bit of room. I would plant them at least three feet around any other type of plant. These are great little plants. You will have lots of comments. People will wonder what type of plants you have growing.
