The official description of the pineapple plant states that: Pure Beauty Farms grows this interesting ornamental pineapple plant, which sprouts an actual pineapple from a large center stem (not for eating). Our ornamental pineapple plant is part of the Bromeliad family, which is native to tropical climates but does very well as indoor plants. It has swordlike spiny green leaves, formed in a dense rosette, with the fruit held in the center on a tall sturdy stalk. Being a sun lover it can be grown on a sunny kitchen windowsill, a sunroom or just about anyplace where it will receive about 6-hours or so of sunlight. Many people grow them indoors in the winter and place them outside in a sunny location during the warmer months. The ornamental pineapple plant makes a unique living gift for someone with a taste for the exotic. This strikingly spiky pineapple plant will give any home or office a tropical transformation. Allow the soil to dry out between watering.
You'll want to find a nice sunny spot to keep this pineapple plant thriving at home. Make sure it receives the necessary amount of sunlight to thrive each day. Also, remember to keep the pineapple plant indoors during winter months and start to move it once it gets warmer outside. The pineapple plant will tolerate drought and sandy soil as long as careful attention is placed on water and fertilizer needs, according to Delish.
You can nourish the plant by watering it once a week. If the soil you use does not hold water very well, then you might need to make it twice or thrice a week. As you can see, it's quite low maintenance, but just be sure to pay careful attention during long, hot, dry periods where it might require you to water more frequently, especially during the time where it flowers.
The pineapple plant is available to purchase at Home Depot for just $29.98 and comes in a 5-inch super cool designer pot. You pretty much have all you need there! The plant will be handily delivered straight to your doorstep so it's just like any other package really.
