Why does repotted Pineapple now have brown leaves?

lizzyloveslancer(6)June 10, 2012

I repotted my 3yo Pineapple plant grown from a top and put it outside for the summer. The leaves are turning brown now and they seem to be folding in half. It's been about 3 weeks since it was repotted and moved outside. I used miracle grow potting soil. What could be the problem and how can I fix it?

*it's not the leaf tips but the whole leaf turning brown. *newest growth is not yet affected.

Is the soil holding too much water? I usually use a much looser mix than potting soil. More perlite, turface, grit and pine bark. How much sun is it getting?

It's in full sun and being watered daily just like it has for the last two summers outside. over watering could be the prob as it's in the "moisture lock" soil.
