New pineapple leaves color
« on: September 24, 2022, 09:15:53 PM »
Hello everyone,

2 months ago I planted my first pineapple in a container! It started to grow slowly, but I noticed today that the center of the plant looks like this


The leaves at the center are slightly pale green compared to the rest of the plant.

I was wondering if it was normal or if my plant is in trouble

Thanks for helping me !

Salut,

That might be an iron deficiency.

Its probably just soft new growth that has not yet hardened off.  Its normal for plants to have different color new growth.  Including pineapple plants.

Hello
I've let the plant alone in partial shade for a few days and the leaves became green again !
Thank you for help and guidance  ;)

Hello, in france, you can leave it in full sun.  It doesnt need shade.
