Q.Ornamental Pineapple Pups Fail To Produce Pineapple

Zone Winter Springs, Florida | Anonymous added on September 18, 2022 | Answered

A few years ago, I received an ornamental pineapple plant with a mature pineapple attached. After harvesting the mature pineapple, the mother plant proceeded to produce numerous pups (which have also matured). The various pups remained healthy and were planted in containers. However, to date, none of the pups have ever produced a pineapple. Any idea as to why these plants fail to produce a pineapple??
