Many do not know that from a pineapple we can obtain a plant that will hopefully give us more pineapples. The objective of this article is to explain the process to you.
The ideal is to do it with pineapples that are less ripe, although with these we can also try it.
How to plant a natural pineapple.
The top part is sliced with a knife, as seen in the photo, including a couple of centimeters from the top of the fruit.
We clean the base and clean the dry leaves.
We put it in a glass of water, leaving the base of the pineapple in the water. Change the water if you see it ugly or add more if it is missing.
We will place it in a place where it is light.
About a month later, it will have started to take root.
It is planted in a substrate with medium humidity, 4 parts of peat and one of humus, and is left in the shade. If it is winter and it is cold, you will have to think about placing it in a sheltered place or even in an interior with lots of light. When the good weather arrives it is left outside again, for the moment without sun but with lots of light. When it begins to grow, it can gradually be placed in the sun.
We will water it abundantly. Keep the water moist, not wet.
We leave you an illustrative video:
