Pineapple plant | 12cm | Houseplant

Ananas comosus

Nothing - and I mean nothing - screams tropical better than a pineapple plant! It's an exotic conversation starter and this stunning plant makes us want to burst into song every time we look at it (you know the one we mean). Its fruit can grow as tall as around 90cm with the right care and its long sword-like leaves are so striking.

And, if its looks aren’t enough for you, Pineapple plants are members of the Bromeliad family and, like other Bromeliads, will purify the air in your home. Bromeliads are also special because each plant only ever bears one fruit.

Pineapples are native to South America and usually live in dry, tropical habitats. They love bright, direct sunlight and will do best on a south-facing windowsill.

So, if you like Pina Coladas…

How to care for your Pineapple plant | 12cm | Houseplant

Native habitat

Pineapples are native to South America, in the area between Brazil and Paraguay. It lives in dry, well-drained tropical habitats.

Light and position in the home

Pineapples love bright, direct sunlight and will do best in a South-facing location in your home.


Pineapple plants are able to absorb some water through their leaves. They do not need a lot of water, so wait until the soil has dried out before watering, and then water the leaves and soil. They are more likely to be badly affected by overwatering than underwatering.
