      Some of your comments are absolute gold, especially this one – “Don’t pack it really hard, I mean, don’t go punching it with your fist. It’s a plant, not a punching bag.”

      I love the positive vibe that you give out in all your videos and your honest (and often times, rather funny) comments. XD

      @bittergreentea HAHAHAHAHA! Holy cow I really said that?? I must have been high on diet coke! 🙂

      Why do some people say that you shouldn’t get water on the leaves of plants? If they were outside in nature they’ll get water on them from the rain.

    8. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @stockbrot90 I hear that a LOT. People have reasons and some provide evidence they claim supports the idea that water on leaves is harmful. I never worry about that. Nature knows what it’s doing and rain gets leaves wet. I’ve never had a problem with wet leaves ruining anything. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 🙂

      I have 3 pineapple tops rooted in water. They have long roots. How do I plant them in soil? Should I just let the roots hang straight down, spread then over a mound, spread out, or other. I am thinking over a little mound might be best. Also, what size container would you suggest. The roots are probably around 12″ long.

    10. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @LunaWolfe1 The mound idea is my choice. With roots that long I would go with a 3 gallon pot at least. It may sound huge, but keep in mind that it’s a pain to transplant them once they get those long pointy (ouch my eye!) leaves. Mine is now in a 5 gallon pot and is more than likely fine for it’s life in it. There is no way on earth I’m transplanting it to anything bigger. That’s just too heavy for tiny me. 🙂

      We just bought our first home. I’d like to start growing pineapples in my Davie, Fl yard. We are sub-tropical. Can I start the seedlings directly outside? What is the best process?

    12. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @jbresset That sounds like a fun project! You will want to plant them in the sunniest location you can find. A well drained soil is perfect. I think your area might have slightly alkaline soil. Pineapple prefers slightly acidic. I would toss in just a little compost for nutrients. Not a lot. also toss in a little peat moss to lower alkaline levels. Mix it with the soil and presto! You are ready to plant the pineapple tops. Water infrequently to force root growth. It’s as easy as that. 🙂

      Great Video there! I used to grow pineapples in West Palm Beach. What an awesome thing to have fresh pineapples really often. Now that I’m in Rhode Island I really on sunny windows and the greenhouse. Thanks for the fun videos!

      Dude – I love pineapples, and think this is an awesome idea. I live in NC, where the summers are hot and humid, so I guess I can leave them outside during the summer and bring them in when during fall, winter, and spring??

      Thanks for the idea, and inspiring video! I can’t wait to get to the grocery store and buy a pineapple!!!

      @ksbuchanan Sounds like a great idea. They’d get great sun this summer and be able to continue indoors in the winter. Go for it. 🙂

      Container gardening is my only option at the moment 😀 It’s my first time, so this year was more of an experiment. Best thing growing so far is my strawberries and corn. I have 3 stalks in one 2.5 gallon bucket (and I have 8 buckets) and they’re all putting out at least one ear each! I almost had luck with my pea plant and carrots, too, before they dried out. My fault for lack of watering… I got 5 pea pods off of it before it died. lol Next year, I’ll be more diligent!

    18. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @CraftFamilyMO Congrats on the successes that you had. I’ll bet those 5 pea pods were delicious right? right? lol Darn right they were. You can slow down the need for watering by using light colored pots and tossing mulch such as mowed grass on the soil in the pots to hold in moisture. Growing corn in pots is actually one heck of an accomplishment. Good luck and let me know how they ripen, ok?

      Omg, what is your dog’s name? Is it Rascal? If so, that is my dogs name too!

    21. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @grayln LOL Yep that’s his name. I think it fits him. He’s a bit of a hyperactive ball of energy. 🙂

    22. AhBbJeh Says:

      @Praxxus55712 What is it about the light colored pots that does not require as much watering? (your answer to CraftFamilyMO from above)

    23. Praxxus55712 Says:

      @AhBbJeh Dark pots absorb sunlight and generate heat more than lighter pots. The excessive heat will dry the soil in the pot faster than in lighter pots.
