I am over-burdened with differing bits of info on growing pineapples. I have two on my porch ~ a newly planted one, and another I've had for two years, which has finally shown growth in the last four months.
I would appreciate any sure-fire tips from members.
Thanks in advance!
Um, well, they need an iron rich soil, and that's about the extent of my knowledge.
Get yew a volcano. < That's mine.
The secret to growing pineapples is conversation. That's right -- you need to talk to your plants. A brief conversation in the morning, about an hour or so, and a soothing goodnight conversation, say around 2 hours, should stimulate growth and cause your pineapples to be the envy of the neighborhood. People might give you strange looks when they see you talking to your pineapples, but to hell with them. What do they know.
And songs! Pineapples love songs. Sing to them, Rae. Sing your heart out.
If I think of anything else... I'll let you know.
All my favourite mins!
Iron rich soil, a volcano and singing. Thanks guys.
I think. :wink:
ya know, getting a working volcano with iron rich soil is going to be a logistical nightmare.
my advice is to just go to the grocery store and buy one, and sing as you slice.
Sound advice ~ thanks!
I really am serious though. About the pineapples. Growing them, that is.
no idea...I dont think NE is a good place to do this so...thats probably why we dont.
However...I found this...hope it helps!
Thanks, quinn! You are awesome! :wink:
always willing to help a friend
well, if I can.
You're just great yourself there gal....
pineapples eh? Thats just amazing to me with my pears and tomatos and peppers...its a logistics thing I suppose.
Chile peppers are next on my list. My very Italian neighbor gave me some potent seeds. (Helped her move plants inside during our last freeze and commented on her beautiful pepper bush/tree.)
Thanks again! You da best!
