I have a pineapple plant growing by my kitchen window and its getting very large and clumsy and gets in the way and I want to give it a good pruning but I'm not sure if that would kill the plant, my plan is to prune all the sides leaving just the middle growth.

Pineapple plants do get pretty big - not exactly counter top plants. I just looked it up: 3 - 6 ft wide and high. I doubt pruning will kill it but, pineapple plants aren't long lived anyway. After it grows some new pups, it will die.

I don't have any space for it outside plus it will need to be bought back inside when it starts to get cold again. I decided just to go for it and here is what it looks like right now and my kitchen has a little more light now.
