Newbie with ornamental pineapple plant
Hello everyone! I am a newbie to this forum..and a newbie to the world of gardening too. A few months ago, in late May, I bought a cute little ornamental pineapple plant from Trader Joe's. I left it alone, rarely watered it, and placed it under grow lights that my father uses to grow tomatoes. Now, this week, I noticed that my pineapple plant has turned very yellow. I didn't anticipate this! I compared it to old pictures that I took when I first got it, and it sure has grown! Does anyone know if I have to harvest the fruit now? What will happen to my plant if I do or do not harvest the fruit? I have grown attached to the little thing and wish I wouldn't have to harvest the fruit. I am afraid I will harvest it incorrectly (I have a bad track record of killing plants, even killing succulents within a month of owning them) and then kill my poor plant. Please help. Thank you!
