Home Depot Is Selling A Pineapple Plant For $30 That Will Bring The Tropics To Your Home

Houseplants not only look good and brighten up interiors, but they are also good for your health. The facts, backed up by scientists, of course, speak for themselves. A study done by NASA more than a decade ago revealed that houseplants can contribute to removing up to 87% of air toxins in just 24 hours. Other studies have shown that plants can reduce stress levels and boost your mood.

Naturally, not everyone has a green thumb, but for those who’ve no experience in taking care of plants, cacti and succulents are a good place to start. However, this beautiful, tropical plant is not as high-maintenance as it looks!

More info: Home Depot | Pure Beauty Farms

Home Depot is selling this pineapple plant that will make you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation

This beautiful plant is part of the bromeliad family, native to tropical locations, but also thriving indoors. All you’ll need is to find a sunny spot for it, as it needs approximately 6 hours of sunlight each day. Also, it needs watering once a week, unless the soil does not hold water well. In that case, you’d need to water the pineapple twice a week.

It’s from Pure Beauty Farms, a Miami-based company

Many people are keeping this gorgeous guy inside during the cold months and moving it outside as soon as it gets warmer out, although it may be necessary to water more the pineapple more frequently while it’s there, especially if it’s flowering or bearing fruit.

The plant is available at Home Depot for $29.98

The pineapple has spiny green leaves and the actual small fruit sprouts on the large center stem. However, the product description says it’s not to be snacked on—its purpose is solely decorative.

And it comes in a 5-inch designer pot

Unfortunately, at the moment, Home Depot is out of stock of these plants. So head on to their page to refresh it and check for updates.

you can easily grow your own plant... cut the top off of a pineapple, set it in a dish of water in a sunny window... the remaining pulp will rot away and roots will grow out of the thick core... transplant into potting soil, set outside, water frequently until it makes new leaves... when it gets big enough, you will have to trick it into setting fruit by using a trash bag & placing a rotting apple inside the bagged plant... good luck.. p.s.. not hardy, do not let freeze outside, bring in & place in sunny window

In the 17th century, a single pineapple sold for today equivalent of $6000 in England. Today people get pissed off if their fruit salad has pineapple in it for free.

jknbt is right, you can grow your own from a store bought food pineapple. We grew one at school. It even had a pineapple grow on it. Then the fire marshal made us get rid of it.

What? Why would the fire marshal make you get rid of it? Sounds like a mean person.
