Water the plants well once they are planted. Pineapple lilies need constant moisture in the summer for fuller more colorful blooms, then cut back on watering in the winter, as too much water will cause the bulbs to rot.
Fertilize regularly with fish emulsion or liquid kelp once every
month during the summer.
You may propagate pineapple lilies by removing offshoots of the plant in the spring.
Gently pull the new plantlet off the original plant and put it into another part of your garden or into its own pot. Many other plants like bromeliads are propagated this way.
Pineapple lilies may be grown outdoors year round to Zone 7. Although they can grow much better when left in the same spot for several years.
In colder climates, you should dig up the bulbs and store them indoors for the winter. Store them in a pot of soil similar to that in the garden. Let the pots dry out before storing and keep them dry during the winter. Keep them in a place that stays between 55 and 68 degrees.
