I know some of you have green thumbs. See our little pineapple over there? Mama Snookums bought it for us for Christmas. Unfortunately on the way down to Sydney he was jostled and his little neck (i.e. the part holding up the fruit) broke. We’ve got him tied upright now, but I fear the worst. He’s slowly turning yellow, which Snookums believes is a sign that he’s dead and ripening. What do you think? If he is, how do we go about growing another one? Do we just cut him off and another will grow? Or do we have to dig up the whole plant and then re-plant the top from the fruit?
R.I.P., wee pineapple.
