Mabel is growing pineapples in the greenhouse, she is in 8th grade. She roots her pineapples in water and transfers them to pots when they have established roots. This picture is of her pineapples in water rooting, she changes the water several times a week. It takes two years for a pineapple to bloom, she will force her pineapples to bloom, and will sell them for people to enjoy as the pineapple grows. It takes about six months for a bloom to turn into a ripe pineapple.
