Are Pineapple Plants Indoor or Outdoor?

Pineapple plants are an interesting addition to any garden or indoor space. In terms of how best to cultivate them, it is important to know that these plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors.

Outdoor pineapple plants are typically grown in tropical and subtropical climates, such as those found in Hawaii, the Caribbean, and some parts of the United States. In these climates, pineapple plants can be grown in full sun and need temperatures between 70-90°F (21-32°C) for optimal growth. When grown outdoors, pineapple plants require frequent watering and regular fertilization with a balanced fertilizer. Additionally, outdoor pineapple plants are susceptible to cold temperatures so they should be protected when temperatures drop below 50°F (10°C).

Indoor pineapple plants require similar care as outdoor pineapple plants with the main difference being that they need bright light instead of direct sunlight. If you’re growing an indoor pineapple plant, make sure it is placed in a sunny spot with plenty of indirect light throughout the day. Indoor pineapple plants also need temperatures between 70-90°F (21-32°C) for optimal growth and should be watered regularly but not too often. Additionally, indoor pineapple plants need to be fertilized regularly with a balanced fertilizer to ensure proper growth.


Pineapple plants can be grown both indoors and outdoors depending on the climate and environmental conditions available. While outdoor pineapple plants require full sun and protection from cold temperatures, indoor pineapple plants require bright light throughout the day and regular fertilization for optimal growth.
