Ananá 'means something like' excellent, fragrant fruit '. Ornamental pineapple is a smaller (non-edible) version of the wild pineapple.
Ornamental pineapples are very ingeniously put together. The tubular chalice is a perfect pond for water. And the rosette with stiff, lance-shaped leaves forms a beautiful system of channels to transport all the moisture to the heart of the rosette. The leaves can be gray-green, but also green with pink. And where the classic fruit pineapple is yellow-green, the ornamental version is more pink-red. It is a very easy plant: water it occasionally and you will enjoy it for up to six months.
Ornamental pineapples like a light, but not in full sun.
Water generously in the rosette that serves as a reservoir and sparingly on the potting soil.
If the air inside is very dry, misting with a plant spray is a real treat for pineapple.
Plant food once every three weeks keeps flowering beautiful and rich.
Pineapple symbolizes a warm welcome and a generous reception. For that reason, you often see the plants as crowning gates, as living or sculpted versions. The pattern of the pineapple fruit features the golden ratio, a geometric formula in a spiral shape that is said to be 'most attractive to the eye'.
Pineapple for months of flowering pleasure.
