Edible Pandanus

Bundle dry leaves for effective eco-friendly air freshener and roach repellent, a use popularised by SE Asian cabbies. Amused to see it done recently in a Sydney public loo. Hope my plant will one day be big enough to spare precious leaves for that! | D. Lim - Seven Hills, NSW 07-May-2012

Edible Pandanus

If you like eating steamed rice, you can just cut 1 or 2 leaves of pandanus, wash and fold them, stuck them in when your rice is boiling. You can take it off when your rice is done leaving a very nice aroma on the rice. | Emmalyn Kendall - Abbey, WA 18-Dec-2013

Edible Pandanus

TIP: If you love eating steamed rice, you can put a leaf or two in the cooker while the rice is boiling. You can take it off afterwards but it'll leave a very nice aroma on the rice. | Emmalyn Kendall - Abbey, WA 18-Dec-2013

Fresh leaves can be stored in a zip lock bag in the freezer for later use. Use or freeze them as soon as possible, much of the aroma fades within a few days of being picked. | Kath C - Girrawheen, WA 31-Jul-2016

Pandanus - Edible

Can easily grow in mid coast NSW, but needs more care over winter. Need to bring it into the house. | J - Newcastle, NSW 24-Aug-2016

Pandanus - Edible

In Sydney, when temperature gets below 15 degrees, keep indoors. Also water less in winter to keep roots dry. Unfortunately mine died in Sydney winter as i brought it in too late. Will try another in summer and take TLC during winter. | Mal - Pennat Hills, NSW 24-Jul-2018

Pandanus - Edible

Hard to grow in Sydney’s cooler winter, bring plant in when temp goes below 15 or leaves lose the dark green colour. Water less in winter to prevent root rot. Buy a large plant to give it a chance in Sydney winter and try promote vigorous growth in summer | Mal Raj - PENNANT HILLS, nsw 26-Jul-2018

Is this plant the pandan?
PhilippafromDerbyWA1 says... [2552 days 9hrs ago]
Pandan is the common name for all pandanus. Pandanus amaryllifolius is the popular edible pandanus found in asian cooking. My pandanus is one of the local species found in the Kimberly. The aboriginal people use most all parts of this plant. I hope this is helpful.

Pandanus - Edible (Seedling) 7/10

Kath5's Edible Fruits
Update: 786 days 11hrs

Comments: - Lovely fragrant plant but always struggled in Perth winters until it rotted one year. It might have done better if I'd kept it inside in winter and been more careful not to overwater.

Hello, wondering if you would sell me some Pandanus -Edible seeds or seedlings (for planting)?
Kath5 says... [391 days 13hrs ago]
Hi, it died so I don't have any, but I originally bought it from Canning Vale Sunday market, so you might be able to get one there.

Note this plant is hard to grow in Sydney's cooler winter.

When night-time temp goes below 15C or when leaves lose the dark green colour, bring plan indoors. Water less in winter to keep roots dry as roots may rot. I lost my plan to winter as I brought it in too late. Will try again in summer. Buy a large plant to give it a chance in Sydney winter and try promote vigorous growth in summer to make plant healthy for winter. May not like full sun in winter if leaf colour has lost its dark green.
