The man in the video starts the process by pulling off the leaves of a pineapple. After tearing off the leaves (he uses a fresh pineapple), they are placed into a jar with some water. Within a few short days, the mixture of leaves and water begins to show roots, as you can see by tuning into the video at the 1:18 mark. His leaves and water have been allowed to grow unabated for quite a while, which means that they are ready to be transplanted. After filling a red cup with the necessary amount of soil, he surrounds it with more soil and gives it one last firm packing motion. You can also watch a video that shows you how to create soil with additional hydration power by using a child’s diaper.
Be sure to watch the video up until the 3:40 mark, where you can learn how to remove the leaves from the pineapple. Not only does he prune them, but he will also demonstrate the proper way to place it into the water. There is a certain sequence of events that needs to be followed in order for this process to work as it should.
The leaves will need to cut off and chopped down into squares, so that there are no brown parts. By removing these parts, you are actually encouraging brand new growth. Before too long, you will have grown a pineapple tree of your own, providing yourself with a homemade slice of island heaven.
Not only are pineapples a great snack to have on hand during the summer seasons, but you will be hard pressed to keep your friends and family away from your stash of freshly grown pineapples! If there’s one snack food that everyone can agree about, it’s a succulent, home grown pineapple.
