Ananas Corona - Brazilian Red Pineapple Plant is a curious plant with an ornamental red  pineapple growing from the top, but this pineapple is not for eating!

Part of the Bromeliad plant family native to Tropical America it has swordlike spiny green leaves, held in a dense rosette, with the fruit held in the centre on a sturdy stalk. It’s a real sun lover, so pop it on a sunny windowsill to be appreciated.

Light: I prefer well lit areas away from direct sunlight.

Water: Wait until my soil is properly dry before watering me.

Temperature: like proper tropical warmth and never below 15°C.

GroomingOnce my fruit fades, snip me off. I should then produce offsets which will take over and become new pineapple plants!

Humidity: I love Humid. My Brown leaf tips are a tell-tale sign that the surrounding air is too dry. Snip these ends off and place me on top of a pebble tray or use a humidifiere to increase humidity.

Toxicity: I'm mildly toxic if ingested, so your call about whether to keep me near pets or children. 

Origin: I am from South America, particularly Northern Brazil.
