Growing pineapple in Florida
It has been a while when i last time posted here. Remember when i asked what fruits you grow in Florida? I tried growing pineapple in pot, but it didn't work. I bought pineapple from shop and put it in pot. First i cut top of pineapple. I don't remember how much i cut it from top, maybe 1 cm or 2 cm below that leafs. So that it got little bit that wood thing. That is about 1 inch as you use inches in U.S.A. I put soil in pot and put pineapple to to soil, that way it was little covered by soil. Then i gave it little water. Mine pot was little small, and pineapple just fit the pot so i could just give it little water.
Maybe mine pot was too small. After that nothing happened. I looked one day it and no root was growing. Pineapple was not growing in soil. When i touched pineapple by hand and tried to look if it was growing, it came out of pot i didn't see roots. It was not growing in pot. I think that small pot was not reason not to grow, as it fitted the pot. After that i put that pineapple out. It didn't work. I don't have now pineapple.
Katkin you there? Remember when you said you "When ever I buy one at the store, I plant the tops." As mine growing attempt failed, can you give detailed information about growing pineapple? I know you can buy pineapple and plant top of it. I don't know how much of top? I ate the sweet part of mine pineapple, as i know top of it is needed and you can eat the sweet part. Did i got it right?
How much from top you took from pineapple? How deep you put in soil? Did you gave water after planting it? Did you gave light to it, that would be mean in Florida did you put it in sunny place in garden? Can you give some advice how to grow pineapple from top of it? How long it took to establish them after you planted them?
Stuartwanda you there? Do you have some growing advice too?
Others can too tell their advice, but those 2 told they are growing it from top.
