    sweet those are doing well! although they are considered bromeliads, these do not get water in their central cup right? they don't even have one i don't think..

    a MONTH??!
    that looks like half a year's worth of growth maybe more, that is fantastic. i remember people not even getting roots by a month's time, how do you do it?

    Roots are already there a lot of people dont know that theres no need to root them in water. Once you twist the top of the pineapple start pealing the leaves off around the base about 4 to 5 rows worth this will expose the roots i was talking about then they go straight into the ground. Try it yourself you will see how easy it is.
