    I've never grown them, but I do know they like a tropical climate.

    Hot and humid is perfect, they're typically grown in Hawaii.

    My mother has a pineapple plant growing, we bought a whole pineapple fruit and after we peeled it, she planted the "head" (the top part with the green leaves) in a pot and its growing. Not sure how long we have to wait until we get rewarded with fruit, but thats an alternative to seeds.

    Most seeds (in general) take about 10 days, so keep soil moist and hopefully you'll see some action!
