Using apples to force Pineapple to fruit
I read that apples release ethylene gas that will trigger the pineapple to fruit. My pineapple is 3 years old and has never fruited so I put the pot in a grocery bag and then put 10 apples in it. I tied the bag tight around the bottom couple inches of the plant. I didn't have a clear bag big enough for the entire plant so I wasn't sure this would work or not just exposing that little amount of the plant. I left it for about 3 weeks then took the plant out and discarded the apples. About a month later I have a pineapple fruit forming from the centre. I will update with pictures as the fruit develops.
