I have two pineapple plants that are about 6 months old. I grew them from the tops. I just transplanted them into larger, 21" x 16" pots with garden soil, compost, perlite, sand and 8-8-8 fertilizer.
They have been in these new pots for a week and I watered them well when I replanted them. Should I start fertilizing now? One article I read said no fertilize for the first 6-8 weeks.
They are in great condition, the top 1-2" of the soil is dry, but I have a moisture / Ph meter and below 2" the soil is moist.
I have a dry fertilizer that I haven't used yet, Citrus Gain, and my plan was to spread it around the plant (but not touching the base) and then water.
My question is do I water the top of the plant so it's moist, and add fertilizer, or just water?
