A curious plant with an ornamental pineapple growing from the top, but this pineapple is not for eating! Part of the Bromeliad plant family native to Tropical America it has swordlike spiny green leaves, held in a dense rosette, with the fruit held in the centre on a sturdy stalk. Being a sun lover, pop it on a sunny kitchen windowsill to be appreciated.
A unique growing gift for someone with a taste for the exotic, this strikingly spiky pineapple plant will give the house a tropical transformation.
Allow the soil to dry out between watering. You can feed it with a balanced liquid fertiliser from spring to autumn.
Can be bought either potted with concrete pot or unpotted.
