How to Grow Pineapples at Home?

Pineapple is a tropical American plant with a fleshy large edible fruit and has a sweet smell. It is packed with minerals and vitamins, and consists of nutrients such as Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and calcium. The fruit helps boost the immune system, strengthen the tissues and bones, protects the body from arthritis, high blood pressure, bronchitis, dyspepsia, thyroid and other conditions. Find out how to grow pineapples at home.

Slice a pineapple
Use a sharp knife to cut a healthy and ripe pineapple into slices measuring half inch. When a pineapple is golden yellow and bright in color, particularly about the base, it can be termed as ripe. While slicing a pineapple, you will find black, small seeds in the flesh of the fruit. You can separate the seeds from the fruit's flesh, use water to wash them up and then allow them to dry over a towel or baking sheet.

Cover the seeds
Keep the pineapple seeds in a glass container and cover it with the help of the lid. Place the container with the seeds in a warm spot where direct sunlight is unavailable.

Allow the seeds to germinate
Allow some weeks to the seeds to let the germination happen. When the seeds sprout small green or white roots, you will understand that they are germinating. Wait until you find the roots sprouting 1 inch from the pineapple seeds prior to planting.

Fill up planters
Use soil to fill up transparent, small-sized planters. Remove the seedlings from the container with the help of tweezers. Plant the seedlings into the soil a few centimeters apart from one another. Plant the seeds below the soil and have the sprouts over the soil. Use a dome-shaped, transparent cover in order to keep the planter covered.

Water the seeds
You should water the planters about once every week, to ensure that the soil is not flooded but only moist. Before watering, you should use your fingers to check the quality of soil. In case the soil feels muddy or moist, you should wait for a day or two prior to watering it once more.

Allow more time
For some more weeks, you should keep the pineapple seedlings in the covered up planters. You should place the germination jars in the same spot, until it gets twice its original size and starts to clutter the planter. Once the container starts to get crowded, transplant the seedlings.
