Thanks, nata, for the growing information! Do you actually split the pineapple bromeliad crown into three separate segments and plant each segment, or do you just split the bottom at the stem and leave the crown intact? I am guessing it is the first method to make three bromeliad crowns out of one.

The apples and other ripening (or over-ripe) fruit produce ethylene gas which does promote flowering and fruiting in pineapple plants. Your "apple-cud" method is a novel approach, one which I had not previously encountered, but it certainly sounds like it would work (and you get to eat part of a healthy apple in the process! LOL)

Happy Gardening!
