Grow your own Pineapples!


Ever wonder how to grow your own pineapple at home? It’s super easy! Next time you go to the grocery store, be sure to pick up a pineapple and grow one at home for yourself!

How to grow pineapples at home

STEP ONE: Cut off the top of the pineapple.

STEP TWO: Place pineapple top in a cup of water, ensuring that roots are covered. Remember to change out the water every couple of days.

STEP THREE: Once the roots start to show, you’ll want to plant in soil. We chose to plant ours in a pot since winter will be here in a few months and we weren’t sure how cold it was going to get here in Savannah, GA.

We chose this self watering planter to help us with watering. If you want one similar, check out these: CLICK HERE.

Jake poured soil into the planter.
Dug a little hole for the pineapple to go in and covered around with soil.
Once the pineapple was in, we added extra soil on top.

After a few months, a hard stalk will appear in the center and you’ll want to keep this moist so the pineapple can develop properly. Once the pineapple is fully ripe, you may then pick it. Some plants vary and can sprout within a year, while others typically take two years.

I’ll update this post as our pineapple grows, so be sure to keep checking back! 🙂

Our helpers were nearby, as always.
