Those things look like they're about ready to fruit already. Beautiful healthy looking plants, keep us updated.

Looks like I got the last one.

What kind of soil and fertilizer are you using on those things?  They're huge!

I use Pro-Mix potting soil. and i start my pineapple plants off with a slow release like Osmocote for the root system than once a month i use Miracle-Gro Water Soluble Azalea, Camellia, Rhododendron Plant Food for acid loving plants works great little gose's along ways

my white sugarloaf are getting huge too Thanks to Jude from hawaii for giving me the tip on using Miracle-GroŽ Water Soluble Azalea, Camellia, Rhododendron Plant Food for acid loving plants.... she said the bigger the plant the bigger the pineapple will get so far she is right about the plants getting huge

if you want more later down the road and once i get some offsets to offer forsale i will keep everyone updated
