    Looks like you're off to a good start, Diane! Our neighbors gave us a potted pineapple just beginning to fruit when my husband's mother died in 2004. We cut the top off the fruit and planted it about a year ago, and this is the result. Hoping for flowers and fruit! And speaking of broms, our Silver Vase (I think that's the name) was a gift from a friend several years ago. This is the first bloom!!! Isn't she beautiful?? The colors are correct. I've heard that Silver Vase bloom when they reach 6 or 7 years of age.

    Lovely Silver Vase, Tmai, and a healthy looking pineapple! What happened to the parent plant?

    The parent plant shriveled and died back not long after we cut the pineapple off in late fall. I may not have treated it right, I cut the fruit off the parent and stuck the top in a pot and that's about as far as I got. Our poor plants kinda had to fend for themselved for a while after Ivan. Most came thru great but the parent pineapple did not.
    Thanks for the compliments on the siver vase - can't claim the handiwork but I'm awed by the gift of it!
