|This is about 2 months of root growth. We planted in soil it right after this photo.|
We just carefully cut off the leafy top when we cut up our pineapple and placed it into a wineglass filled with water to root. And slow and surely it did root. And the green part didn't die! It seemed like it was only going to root on one side at first, but eventually the other side got to business too. It took about two months from the date we started for the roots to be several inches long all around the base. We then transplanted it into soil in a little pot where it now resides.
