Default How to fertilize a pineapple

Can anyone tell me what's the best way to fertilize it. Can I spray it with
a liquid fertilizer solution. And if so do I have to spray it every day? And, is the pot size important or doesn't it need a big pot.
It is inside the house during the winter.

I'm pretty sure from reading on the net that the farm raised are fed via the root system and that they are heavy feeders. That's the way I feed mine. I water them mostly by hosing down the leaves like any other bromeliad though. I'm sure you could feed by spraying the leaves too but I have no clue what mixture or how often.
