we eat a lot of pineapples. I've been trying to grow the tops and composting the hollowed out shells. After I use the pineapple cutter tool I'm left with a nice empty container, so today I decided to see if I could put my plants in them. I don't intend to use them as final pots. I expect them to compost around the little plant adding nutrients to the growing environment.
I rinsed the pineapple hull then added a layer of leaves to the bottom, some dirt, then put the plant in. It was already in a biodegradable pot, so I've effectively put it in a second biodegradable pot. I'll put this whole thing into the container that I'm growing the cucumbers (in this case) in. I'll post updates about how it goes.
