Pineappley goodness

I recently stumbled upon a website about growing a pineapple plant.

I have now started to attempt this.

The website that I found said to cut the top off, stick it in some water, then in a few days plant it. Other sites have said to twist the top off, because the flesh will rot and kill it, and let it sit for a few days.

Have you ever tried this in any way?

Andrew, it's safe to say that I have no experience with this, but I'll be waiting to see what your results will be. I've heard of it, but never tried it. This will be a valuable experiment, and we will all want to know exactly how it works.

Keep us posted!
