I have several pineapple plants started from the tops of fruit that I brought home from the grocery store. They have already rooted and are about 1 ft tall. What type of soil, fertilizer, temperatures, etc. do they need?

Pineapples do best in a well-drained soil that is slightly acid with medium fertility. I suggest you choose a high quality potting mix. Then perhaps add a little (10 to 20%) washed, coarse sand to make your grown mix. Keep them in a bright area (direct sunlight is best) and protect them from temperatures below 45 degrees. Fertilize them periodically with a soluble fertilizer product like Miracle Gro at the lower label rate.

Good luck with your pineapples!
