Welcome to the Jungle..:woohoonaner:
Have fun here.
Grow the plant as you would any tropical on a balcony
Super dwarf ornamental varieties will work best for the limited space.

You're watering tooo much. Nanas inside do not transpire a lot of water and do not take up that much though the roots. Get a long stem moisture meter to check soil moisture at the corm and...
