Hope this is correct forum for this question. I wanted to give my pineapple plant a little jiggle to get it started blooming and I surfed and found that calcium carbide is suppose to start the plant growing.
Well my problem is that calcium carbide sounds like a very dangerous chemical and since I am ill and my white blood count is very low I have to be careful what I come in contact with. Does anyone know of something else that might help get my pineapple blooming? I can't cover it with a plastic bag because it is outside and I have a feeling that it would just cook here in Florida if I did cover it. Last time I had one bloom it took 5 years before that happened and then some varmit ate a hole in it before it was ready to be picked.
