How much light does a pineapple plant need?

Pineapples grown outdoors, whether in the ground or in a pot, require full, all-day sunlight to produce the best growth and to eventually fruit. A lack of sunlight can slow foliage development and prevent flowering. If you grow pineapple primarily for the foliage, the plant can tolerate light afternoon shade.

Then, how often do you water a pineapple plant?

The pineapple plant is miserly with water, requiring only about 20 inches of natural rainfall per year, if well distributed. You need only wet the soil once a week, and when the plant is indoors, it is best to apply all the water to the soil.

Beside above, how do you care for a pineapple plant indoors? Water the pineapple stalk very lightly, just enough to moisten the soil – a spray bottle works well for this. Put the pot in a bright window, and water the plant when it's dry, just enough to keep it moist. Don't use any fertilizer yet.

Accordingly, how many hours of sun do pineapple plants need?

six hours

Can you grow pineapples indoors?

It is possible, and easy, to grow a pineapple plant indoors. But, you can grow it as an interesting indoor plant and even get it to produce fruit (albeit small fruit) without letting it take over the living room. Start with a pineapple from the store. Cut the top off and trim the fruit from this small plant.
