I lost count of the week’s to be honest, but I know it was over five weeks. Here is how my pineapple start is looking. 

As you can see, roots have sprouted and are extending from the nubs, which had became pronounced in its early preparations. I had a pot already set up with dirt and so it is now planted. 

I made a small indent in the dirt and nestled the start in it. I have the dirt level right around the level I tried to keep the water at. It is around the ribbed area between the base of the leaves and the bottom with the roots. Now, I will be watering it periodically. I am curious to see how it grows.
