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.

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

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.

It's best to leave the roots in place when you plant the bulbs.

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

ANSWERS

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.

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
