I'm sure you are aware that if you cut the top off of a pineapple and put it in soil it will grow into a pineapple plant. Yes indeed they do. Pineapples are a variety of Bromeliad and bromeliads grow like crazy if you have the touch... or a greenhouse. Well, I haven't a greenhouse and this poor little Pineapple struggled wildly for a few years. The Missouri Ozarks are a far sight from Hawaii or more tropical climes — except in summer when we have heat and humidity to match the best of them. You have to imagine the ocean, palm trees and hula dancers because we have only the heat and humidity.
One day I remembered to water the Pineapple and to my amazement it was actually blooming! Gee, maybe the fertilizer I had given it a few months back had given it some ideas. Anyhow. it's a little stunted, but it sure is cute! you can see that each little cell on the pineapple has it's own blossom. I wonder how a field of them in bloom look.
