[Ananas Comosus Amigo] AKA Dwarf Pineapple plant. The foliage of these plants is dramatic and tough. The fruit itself will eventually fall off and no you can't eat it without pulling your very best yuk! face; it is very much an ornamental feature of the plant so enjoy visually.

Native to South America between Brazil and Paraguay.
Positioning + Light Needs
Pineapples love bright, direct sunlight and will do best in a south-facing location in your home.
They do not need a lot of water, so wait until the soil has dried out before watering, and then water both leaves and soil. They are more likely to be badly affected by over watering than under watering.
Mist every couple of days or so, ideally with lukewarm water. I like above average humidity and warmth.
Feed every 8 weeks during Spring / Summer. Choose a liquid fertiliser in which all the nutrient numbers are the same, for example, 5-5-5 or 10-10-10.
Move to a pot 1 size larger only when necessary.
Child / Pet Friendly
Look out for
Brown leaf tips: often caused by dry air.
Our size guide applies to both plants and planters.
The diameter range for each is based on the following:
Plants: the total nursery pot diameter (exterior measurement)
Planters: the opening diameter (interior measurement)
Plants: The stated height for any given plant is from the ground up, so will always include the nursery pot.
Plant & Planter Fit: To find a planter for your chosen plant, start with the corresponding size category, e.g. plant size S - go to Small (S) planters.
Example 1: your chosen plant size states M | 60 | 21. This is a Medium size (M) with a height of 60cm and a nursery pot diameter of 21cm.
Go to Planters size category: Medium [21 - 29cm].
You will need a minimum planter opening diameter size of 22cm.
Example 2: your chosen plant has a nursery pot diameter of 29cm. Though this falls within our Medium range (21-29cm), you will need to look at 30cm + planters - taking you into the Large Planters category [30 - 39cm].
