How to plant a natural pineapple.
The upper part is sliced with a knife, as seen in the photo, including a few 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 lousy or add more if it is lacking.
We will put it in a place where it is bright.
About a month later, it will have started to take hold.
It is planted in a substrate with an average humidity, 4 parts of peat and one of humus, and left in the shade. If it’s winter and it’s cold, you will have to think about placing it in a sheltered place or even in an interior with a lot of light. When the good weather arrives, he is left outside again, for the moment without sun but with a lot of light. When it begins to grow, it can be gradually placed in the sun.
We will water it abundantly. Keep the water moist and not wet.
