I started a pineapple, the pineapple started growing a fruit bout 6 months ago, fruit was growing good but then began to rot. This process has been about 3 and half years. Took 3 years before the pineapple fruit actually was seen, and grew for about 6 months good now rotting. Will that same plant grow another pineapple or is it done?

I'm not sure what caused the fruit of your Pineapple (Ananas comosus) plant to rot but congratulations on getting your plant to even set fruit! Thumbs up It can take a year or two for a potted pineapple to bloom and set fruit and when grown indoors, if a fruit is produced it usually stays rather small in size. Yes, since your "mother" plant produced the fruit, it is now done and will slowly die.
