The Pineapple Plant is part of the Bromeliad family, which mainly thrive in the tropical Americas. This herbaceous perennial has long sword-like leaves growing in a spiral around a central stem.
The pineapple-shaped inflorescence portion of the plant arises from the end of the stem and blooms about two weeks. It is a stunning display of spiked red and brown points from the center of the plant. After the blossoms, the edible fruit begins to set.
Each pineapple plant will produce one flower stalk and, consequently, one pineapple fruit. The Pineapple plants we have here are already fruiting! Enjoy your pineapple once it ripens as a snack or as a fun decoration! Your plant will produce pups and the cycle can begin anew!
Sadly Pineapple Plants are toxic to pets, as is the unripened fruit!
