I am going to try growing a pineapple from a stalk. I fully admit that I am trying this because of a video on Facebook. 

I brought a stalk from a whole pineapple home from Travis’s folks with the promise that I would let everyone know if it works. I am really excited to be finally doing it. I pulled the leaves off at the base to about an inch and a half of bare stalk. I trimmed off about a half or 3/4 an inch. Now it looks like this:

Now, I’m supposed to let it dry 2-7 days before I set it in water to sprout roots. I believe I’ll let it go two days since it isn’t very big. I’ll keep y’all updated as I go!
