Growing a Pineapple Plant From the Crown- The First Attempt

1 share

Inception: August 24, 2017-As I witnessed from watching a few YouTube videos, I cut off the crown of my fresh pineapple, filled a jar with water, placed the crown in

Update: September 5, 2017- Yesterday, I trimmed the crown down more with a knife (from the bottom) after not seeing any progress with the plant. It has been a lot cooler since the solar eclipse, so I’m not sure if it’s just growing slower because of a lack of heat and sunlight. Yesterday, I moved the bar and the crown out into the middle of the yard to increase the hours of direct sunlight the plant (and the other plants received).

-Later this same day, I went outside to check on my pineapple plant to find it falling apart. The prickly leaves pulled free from the crown and appeared to be quite dead. I’m giving this attempt a #fail and will try again in a couple weeks. ???

  • November 2, 2017: I ended up trying again a few weeks after that first failure…and killed it again. *sighs deeply* I suppose I’ll spend the winter doing more reading and research about growing pineapples and maybe try AGAIN next summer. I am a little disappointed in the pineapples but I do have plenty of avocado seedlings to entertain me throughout the winter, and on the bright side, I figured the dead pineapple crowns will be great for composting.


Apparently growing from crown is a lot trickier than others have led me to believe. One of these days… I will attempt again and succeed!
