Q.Saving Pineapple Plant
My plant was most likely over watered in a month by my mother. She watered it 2-3x a week. The plant has currently no healthy looking leaves, they all turned yellow and drying.
How can i save it and possibly grow new leaves?
Thanks a million!

That pineapple on top is in need of harvest. Once it is golden, it will start to rot if left on any longer.
Unfortunately, you may not save this one because of the nature of how the plant grows. Once that plant produces fruit it will begin the process of dying. Usually, by this point, there will be replacement pups that will take over once the mother dies off.
The only thing that you can do at this point is hope for the plant to produce pups. Once this happens, you can split them into their own containers and begin an anti-fungal treatment.
Make sure that it receives full sunlight all day for it to be at its healthiest. If this is not possible, you will need at least 100 watts (200 is preferred) per plant in order for it to continue its lifecycle properly.
