Do you love pineapple? My household does, and we go through at least two a week. Did you know that you can grow your own pineapple with nothing required other than the top? It’s true. Let me show you how…
First you need to cut the very top away from the base of the pineapple. It’s okay if you leave some leaves behind, you’re going to be taking a few more off anyway.
Next remove about and inch of leaves from the bottom of your pineapple top. You can either cut them away or pull with your fingers.
It should look like this after you’ve removed the leaves. Make sure the bottom is clean and smooth. This will ensure a good root system.
All that’s left to do is place your pineapple top into a small glass filled with enough water to submerge the shaved bottom. Place it on a sunny window sill and wait. Replace the water every week or so to keep everything fresh. In about 6-8 weeks you will have tons of roots sprouting from the bottom, and it will be ready to plant in a pot, or if you live somewhere tropical- plant directly into the ground.
