Today as I was cleaning the living room for the quickly approaching holiday of Passover, I let out a little yelp of joy. Why you may ask? Well, to my great surprise I actually succeeded in rooting a mini pineapple top, something I've been meaning to try for years. The thing is that we don't eat pineapple all that often so the opportunity just doesn't arise, but now that I've had success with rooting this mini pineapple top, I'm gonna treat myself to a regular sized pineapple as well, if I happen to see one! And since all things pineapple are all the rage, well this idea is perfect right now.
The idea behind making a nice houseplant using a pineapple top that you would normally discard isn't that one could actually grow pineapples, but rather that one can enjoy growing a tropical plant with nice folliage without spending a dime, well except for some soil possibly. With this in mind, when you buy that pineapple do pick the one with the nicest top, as that will become your plant. And come to think of it, a few pineapple tops in one planter would look great too, right?
