Cut or twist the top of the pineapple off (you know, the spiky part!), also called the crown.
Then, remove some of the leaves at the bottom that may have started turning yellow.
Remove enough leaves to expose the bottom of the top.
Slice the bottom off the crown to make a clean cut. You don't want to have leaves sitting in water whatsoever.
Plant the crown in a saucer with water so that your pineapple will start to form roots.
Make sure you keep checking the saucer for water - you don't want it drying out as it's forming its roots! Keep adding water as needed.
Once roots start showing (about 3 weeks), and your pineapple plant start growing, it's time to transfer to a pot!
Add moisture retaining potting soil to a large pot and plant your pineapple, making sure you add soil around the roots so it's nice and firm in there!
Keep the soil most and make sure your pineapple has enough light, about 4-6 hours a day.
