Growing Pineapple

I bought pineapple a while ago even though i am not a big fan of that fruit. After consuming it, i saved the top crown part and saved it. Pineapples are a type of bromeliad so i wanted to grow the plant from the top part.

I left in the water for 6 weeks or so changing water periodically when it gets muggy.

Eventually after 6 weeks it started sprouting out roots in the stem part & new leaves started growing too.

Once the roots grew out i planted it in soil outside. Now its been over an year and it is growing healthy.

I tried growing a second one too a while ago, that also successfully grew roots and planted that in the soil & now its well established too.
