    My 1st pineapple plant got severely root-bound when I forgot to up-pot it timely. I literally had to cut the smaller pot off the roots and they were so tightly wound all around each other and so THICK I couldn’t separate without cutting them. Even tho rootbound, it did produce a pineapple before I repotted it in a much larger pot. It was also HUGE & every bit of approx 4 ft tall & wide! Believe me, I won’t EVER forget to up-pot another pineapple plant as they are extremely difficult to maneuver around at that size. All mine stays in my greenhouse year-round as they LOVE all that extra heat, even in the summer. I do use an oil radiator electric heater in the winter as some of my tropicals can’t survive under 40{F}. It doesn’t use as much electricity to run this type of heater nor am I afraid to leave it running at night unattended.
