    I did the pineapple top method to grow roots as shown in the video above I posted. This is the results.

    Probable about 3/4 weeks of sitting in the water.

    Awesome info here guys :) I just got hold of 2 pineapples with the tops on for $1 (missed the 3 for $1 offer they had the week before :'( ) and am going to plant them in a pot so hopefully when we move they're good to go :D

    My mum once chucked hers into the compost and it grew however I think she ripped it out after a year thinking it wouldn't fruit - my takeaway is that they're pretty hardy ;)

    Can pineapples grow in non tropical areas and produce fruit? I've had pineapple tops start in compost heaps but never did anything with them. i wonder if I could get a pineapple

    My father-in-law grew them down in Bermagui NSW (pretty cold and coastal).
