    Do not leave fruit on the top. Peal the lower leaves off until you expose the stock and the root “bumps’.
    If you leave any fruit on it will rot. It is also best to not soak it but to let the stock dry for 24 hours then put
    it directly into the potting mix. The process above will eventually rot.

    I have grown pineapple trees this way up to the point my dog discovered the sweet taste of the root. Keep your plant away from dogs. They can smell the sweet aroma.
