Pineapple plant

Pineapple plant

De Ananasplant komt uit de familie van de Bromelia, waar ze meer dan duizend verschillende neefjes en nichtjes heeft. Een enorme planten familie dus! Van oorsprong komt de Ananasplant uit de tropische landen Brazilië, Bolivia en Paraguay. Maar gelukkig is ze deze landsgrenzen al lang gepasseerd, en is ze te vinden in menig woonkamer. Het bijzonderste van deze kamerplant is misschien wel de vrucht van de plant. Een echte eyecatcher!

Pineapple plant

The pineapple plant comes from the Bromelia family, where it has more than a thousand different nephews and nieces. A huge family of plants! The pineapple plant originates from the tropical countries Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. But fortunately she has crossed these borders a long time ago, and can be found in many a living room. Perhaps the most special thing about this houseplant is the fruit of the plant. A real eye-catcher!

Hoe verzorg je een Ananasplant?

The right location

The Pineapple plant is a sun lover, but one that likes to watch the sun from a distance. Place the plant in a sunny spot, but avoid a spot with direct sunlight. Do not place the plant on the windowsill or next to the window. The Pineapple plant grows best a few meters from a window with lots of light. In the semi-shade it will soon become unhappy. If you do place the plant in direct sunlight, the leaves will burn and the plant will dry out quickly. The fruit will wilt and the colour of the plant will soon fade as well.

Watering the pineapple plant

Make sure that the soil of the pineapple plant is always slightly moist. The plant itself consumes very little water. We recommend watering the heart of the plant. This is where the fruit grows. Make sure that you water the plant calmly. If the pineapple plant has to endure too much water in its heart, the fruit can be damaged. In any case, never give too much water! The Pineapple plant cannot process this in the fruit, so excess water is absorbed into the roots. This can cause root rot. And that certainly does not make the Pineapple Plant happy!

Plant nutrition

A Pineapple plant has a relatively short lifespan. The plant therefore ensures that it can get enough nutrition from the soil. Feeding the pineapple plant, and the rest of the Bromelia family, is not a requirement. Do you want to promote the growth of the Pineapple plant? Then you can feed the plant extra. You can feed the pineapple plant extra by giving it plant nutrition from spring onwards. Use plant nutrition especially for flowering houseplants. After the summer, it is better not to give any plant nutrition at all. In the autumn and winter period there is less sunlight, so the plant uses less energy. As a result, the plant enters a kind of hibernation and only begins to grow vigorously again in spring. This is therefore the moment when you can add the plant nutrition.

Repotting

Is it necessary to repot the pineapple plant? Well, we have good news and bad news about that. We’d like to start with the good news. Repotting is not necessary with the Pineapple plant and the rest of the Bromelia family. The reason? It’s a little less fun. Despite the beautiful fruit the plant grows, it will only take six months. Yeah, that’s right! After the plant has let its fruit bloom, the plant will in most cases slowly die off. Thanks to the short lifespan of the plant, repotting is therefore not necessary. However, there are always cases where the pineapple plant will revive after the flowering period. We therefore recommend not throwing the plant away immediately after the flowering period. Let the plant go its own way, and who knows, maybe it will revive again!

Air purifying function

You’ve probably heard about it, but the Pineapple plant is a very good air purifier. So good, in fact, that it would even help against snoring. How do those stories come out in the world? Most air-purifying plants extract harmful substances from the air during the day and convert CO2 into oxygen. Unlike the pineapple plant! The Pineapple plant does not carry out the air-purifying process during the day, but at night. While you sleep (and snore) the Pineapple plant provides extra oxygen. Something that will benefit you a lot as a snorer. Whether the Pineapple plant really works against snoring we will unfortunately never know.

Is the pineapple plant poisonous?

The pineapple plant and her family, the Bromelia, are fortunately not poisonous. All plants are actually never a good match for pets. Does your cat or dog show strange behaviour, and are there bites from the leaves of the plant? Then contact your vet! It’s better to call the vet too much than too little.

Diseases and peculiarities

Unfortunately, the Pineapple, like its Bromelia family, is very sensitive to spider mites. Spider mites are mites on plants. They mainly occur in dry and warm conditions and can be recognized by the affected leaves of the pineapple plant. In order to prevent spider mites, you can spray the plant preventively with a pesticide.
