How to Grow Your Own Pineapple at Home

It’s surprisingly easy to grow the Pineapple, a tropical plant with an edible fruit, from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a knife, pineapple, large glass, a few toothpicks (or similar), and water!

1) Twist off the top section of the fruit. If it doesn’t twist off, you can cut it away with a kitchen knife.

5) Once the roots have grown, plant your pineapple top firmly in potting soil.

Keep your pineapple plant in a sunny window or outside when it’s warm and keep the soil moist, but avoid over-watering. You may see brown leaves form, but don’t worry about those; the new green leaves will grow from the center of the plant.
