Found in the moist forests of the Queensland coast, from the far north eastern corner of NSW to Cape York. Where penetrating light allows it forms dense columns where it can obscure the trunk of its supporting tree. The spiralling leaves with their prickly edges overlap at the leaf base, older branching stems are naked with wirey clinging roots which attached themselves to the supporting tree as this pandan climps into the canopy seeking out light. The bright red fruits are both attractive and the flesh is edible but with the typical pandan sting to them.
