What to do with a Pineapple Top

Ever notice how beautiful pineapples are? I bought one the other day for $.98 at my local Winco- love that store!  After I cut it up, I couldn't bring myself to throw away the top, so......

I turned it into a center piece!

  1. Did you know that you can grow them? Mel DeSpain put a pineapple top in some potting soil and it grew into a big pineapple plant and it had a baby pineapple growing on it! Of course he has a very green thumb and a sunny southeast corner window. I'll send you a picture if you want. :)

  11. I started a pineapple plant years ago by cutting off the top and planting it in a pot. They make very pretty plants. It was doing really well till I moved it outside, then the dog attacked it )-;

    I have tried several times since to get one to grow with no luck. I will have to give it another try.
