I am considering getting a pineapple plant but I am worried about how it will do in a potted plant rather then put in the ground. We are renting a house out here in Nevada and there really isn't anywhere for a garden out here so I thought about putting it in a pot. Would that be a bad idea? And should I just wait until I get my own house and do a garden with the pineapple plant then?

Thanks in advanced,

Hi Mapache,

Here's some sites that should be helpful.

Have fun!

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

Pineapple plants are quite well siuted for pot culture. They root easily from the top of a pineapple from a grocery store. The trick from my experience is not to over-water the it will rot. They are in the same family as a bromeliad, so watering in the crown of the plant gives it plenty of moisture. If your plant doesn't root very quickly, do not be distressed, as the roots on a pineapple are basically to help the plant maintain balance and keep it from toppling over as it grows taller.
just a thought
