Q.

Pineapple plant, specifically the leaves

Zone Pompano Beach FL 33062 | Anonymous added on April 1, 2018 | Answered

I now have three healthy pineapple plants and love them. As the plants get older the long leaves, esp. the bottom leaves, bend and hang down over the pot. the leaves appear to be dead as they discolor. I did try cutting one leaf and I thought I would need a saw as they are really tough. What is the best way to handle the lower leaves?

This is common on the Pineapple plants, as new leaves grow, the lower leaves will brown.
You can use a sterile knife to remove the lower leaves as they turn brown. Make sure you do not injure the stem.
