|I've had this Pineapple plant potted for about 4 years now. In the winter I have artificial lighting from a BR30 grow light and a 75w eq daylight recessed light most of the winter and spring in the window w/grow bulb. Just recently I do what I normally do and slowly transitioned it outside. I also reported in a more shallow pot. The leaves went from dark green to a light yellowish green. The top surface of the soil is dry and not until 2 1/2" deep the soil is slightly moist. It's a very sandy mix. Recent days have been in the 70s/80s during the day and 55-65 at night. Did I shock it too much? Zinc deficient? Any suggestions welcome. My plumeria which are 15 and 20yrs old transitioned well but not my pineapple plant. Grown from a Grocery store pineapple top. Storms predicted for tonight so I brought it into my garage which is 72 degrees. I look forward to the any help.

A 4-year old pineapple? That has to be the oldest pineapple plant on the planet! You've done well. Plumeria live quite a bit longer.
