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.

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.

Good luck,
Gus

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.

Thanks again! You da best! Cool
