    instead of using the toothpick method I have begun using the glass rocks we have around us adding the water and when roots appear then I have my plant ready to go and it's pretty too!

    cut the top off the pineapple & plant. Keep watering even if the leaves look like it's dying. Plant needs to grow for a year before it's ready to grow a pineapple. Then only 1 pineapple per year, but oh soooo SWEET.

    I've done the pineapple, the plant is now nearly 2 years old so hopefully will have a fruit next year

    I successfully grew pineapples for several years. Living in FL helps. I have had the sweetest crop of pineapples since the 2nd year... Even sweeter than the ones at the store!!!
