Many of us are probably starting to experience some sort of withdrawal symptoms due to a lack of social activities during these times. Don’t worry, it’s totally acceptable and understandable. But instead of dwelling on the negative, why not channel your energy into something positive and productive? For instance, honing your horticultural skills. Don’t think you’re blessed with a green thumb? Fret not because Home Depot has got you covered with their ornamental pineapple plant pots.
Pineapples are a part of the Bromeliad family. As such, they thrive best in tropical regions. Nevertheless, they can do well as indoor houseplants too. In fact, these tropical fruit plants are actually pretty low maintenance, making them an excellent choice for budding plant parents.
These pineapple plant pots are perfect for those who think they’re not blessed with a green thumb
For starters, you’ll only need to water them once a week. However, if the soil doesn’t hold water well, then you’ll have to water them twice a week. Meanwhile, in terms of sunlight requirements, they’ll need an exposure of about six hours per day. So, it’s ideal to place them in a sunny spot to keep them thriving. According to the description, many people grow them indoors during winter and transfer them outdoors by summer. During warmer months, keep in mind to pay close attention to your plants as they may require more frequent watering.
The ones that Home Depot are selling are from Miami-based company Pure Beauty Farms. The plants feature sword-like, spiny green leaves forming a dense rosette. In addition, each one comes with an actual pineapple sprouting from a large center stem. No matter how tempting, do note that the fruit is strictly not for eating. So, simply consider it as an inedible flower instead.
Per the description, the plant can reach up to 24 inches in height and 20 inches in width upon maturity. Meanwhile, the average shipping height is only 12 inches. The tropical fruit plant retails for $29.98 each and comes in a 5-inch designer pot. So, there’s no need for you to worry in case you don’t have one at home.

Not to mention, it’s the closest you can get to a tropical vacation, at least for now.
