Q. When should pineapple lilies be divided?

Mine are growing in a flower bed on the south side of my house in Zone 6b in Wichita, Ks. The clump still blooms but I believe it will soon need to be divided. BTW, it comes back every year and I give it no extra care, such as mulching. It is about 4′ from the foundation.

How wonderful your able to winter over your plants.
I would advise dividing in spring and you should not need to divide more than every 5 to 6 years.

Q. Pineapple lilies

Can I move the pot of bulbs into a garage for the winter without digging

You will need to clean and dry the bulb and store indoors in a cool dry location.
Pineapple Lily is extremely cold sensitive and will not survive in cold temperatures.

Q. pineapple lily

I have a pineapple lily that grows outside in my flower bed for the last 4 years. I live in northern Michigan and I am wondering if it will multiply

This warm climate bulb can multiply. It is hardy in zones 10-11, so it really should not be left outdoors in your colder zone.

Q. Container with betta fish – can i use a pineapple plant instead of lilies or rododendron?

I am growing indoors 2 pineapple plants in water. Since one of them has large roots I put it in a large vase where there is plenty of space to put a betta fish. Before I do it I want to make sure its safe for the fish.

Thank you,

Maria
