|Gravel, sand, potting soil, glass containers|
I washed the glasses and dried them. My pineapples were ready, but I'm not making home-grown pina coladas. Just checked on line. It takes two years to grow a pineapple from a root cutting--two years in sauna-like temperatures. All I have is tiny pineapple seeds.
|Ready to be pushed into the soil|
|One "large" seedling (visible) and several sprouts|
that still had no green.
Today all my excitement is channeled into planting those itty, bitty seeds with their itty, bitty leaves and even smaller roots and creating my very own pineapple plantation. Granted it is small. It's in those four drinking glasses that were headed for the trash because the glass had turned cloudy.
|In the years it will take before these plants make fruit|
there will be plenty of time to find more space of them
and adjust their heat. Better check the thermostat.
