How To Grow A Pineapple In Water

Pineapples, oh sweet pineapples. We just had one last night. Unfortunately it was one from the local grocery store and not one from my garden. However, now that I found out you can grow your own pineapples at home in a jar of water, maybe in about 48 months I will be enjoying my first batch of home grown pineapple.

I only wish that they are just as sweet as the ones that they import from the Tropics. Apparently if you keep it well fertilized and taken care of it, the fruit has no choice BUT to taste good.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Regular grocery store pineapple
  • Glass Jar or container
  • Water

This is what I really love about this method. Its so simple and yet it had never crossed my mind to try it. Remove the crown from the pineapple by twisting it off. It is not recommended that you cut it off, don’t worry twisting it off is easier that it looks. You may need to wear gloves to get a firm grip of the crown as you twist it.

Also I know from experience those leaves can be sharp, so be careful when you are removing them to expose the nodes and baby roots. It takes about a week or two for the longer roots to start growing. Eventually when you are ready the plant can be transferred into a container with soil or your garden.
