    This is a GREAT Idea! I have a pineapple on the counter and we're going to see if we can grow our own. My daughter is out collecting small rocks for drainage right now.

    That sounds interesting and fun to try. A few years ago I saw pineapple plants at Walmart, but I think they were just decorative plants. I would love to try this, but my plants seem to die for some reason in my apartment.

    i seen this idea on pinterest but a lot of posters had said that it took about 2 years before it actually produced fruit. Still a really neat idea and one i would like to try!

    Other plants can also be started from leftovers that you would normally throw away. I have successfully started several new celery plants by cutting the celery off a couple of inches above the base, leaving the white thicker bottom and where the root was cut off. Place this in a shallow tray of water, and watch your celery re-sprout from the center. Look for roots to form from the bottom, and plant into dirt. You could also skip the water part and plant directly into dirt, but make sure to keep the soil moist to encourage root growth. I haven't tried the Epsom salts, or dried tea with the water as described above, but will do so!
