Step 1: Cut off the top of the pineapple. There is a space between the yellow part of the fruit and the "stem" or the prickly part that needs to stay WITH the top. (see photo)
Just under the stem on the pineapple are "roots" that help it to grow to make more pineapple. This is why the "roots" need to stay with the "stem" or prickly part.
Step 2: Let the "stem" of the pineapple dry out. Keep it in a cool place, upside down for at least 24 hours or until the bottom is completely dried out.
Step 3: After the "stem" is all dried out, place it in a small glass of water. (This is the bottom of the "stem" where you can see the "roots" in the water.)
Step 4: Change the water every day or two. Keep in a sunny place with filtered light. After the "roots" start to grow, place in a pot with acidic fertilizer and potting soil. After it has been planted in the pot, it can share its love outside.
