Pineapple Patch

The pineapple patch has a mix of producing plants and young plants. Some of these plants were started from the tops of mature pineapple fruit by cutting the tops off and setting in shallow water or on top of a soil filled pot,  allowing them to take root, then add to the patch. Other plants, however, started as "babies" from the adult, producing plant, similar to the way a spider plant produces babies.....only not quite as many.

It should be noted that a mature plant will produce only one pineapple in its' lifetime.
