Yesterday above, today below
the thing is, the pineapple is growing 1/4 inch a day, we are literally watching it grow. I check it at 6:30 am and by noon, it has changed, by just before dark, it has changed again, I have never seen anything grow so fast. (note:maybe staring at a pineapple causes rapid growth)
During one of many Macro Shots, I accidently touched the sharp edge of the long foliage. At first i thought it was a razor cut, but then found I was the proud owner of not one but five needle sharp spines in my finger.
Seen only under a bright lamp and with the help of tweezers I manged to pull them out.
i was amazed when i google the sentence Beware of the Pineapple. try it! there are even videos! by clicking around i found this site, Pineapple Fruit Facts. if you are interesed there is a lot of info there.
I wish I had found it sooner, this is the sentence that would have saved me PAIN.
Foliage: The long-pointed leaves are 20 - 72 in. in length, usually needle tipped and generally bearing sharp, upcurved spines on the margins. OK, so NOW I know!
I also found it may have purple or red flowers.
BEWARE The Pineapple.......Whoo Boy! My three cameras are READY. Are YOU??
