They grow wild in Darwin.
I brought back a few plants for Asian friends & neighbours, but they rarely survive for more than 2 winters in Sydney's cold climate.

You could buy frozen leaves from Thai grocery stores near Castlereagh Street (and Sydney's Chinatown) if you want them for cooking purposes.

This plant is rarely found in nurseries, but if you are going to Broome, Karratha, or Darwin, I could give you contacts of people there who has Pandan plants in their backyards.

You sometimes find them in fruit & vege stalls at Darwin's Parap Market and other weekend markets.

Good Luck !!

Lynn, Have you tried the fruit shops run by Vietnamese. I have seen Pandan plants being sold in Vietnamese shops in Brisbane. They are also difficult to keep alive even in Brisbane.

san and kim,
i think i have masochistic tendencies where plants are concerned - i want to grow one for the thrill of growing it, rather than just have them from the grocer's. i don't know when i would ever have the opportunity to go to darwin to buy a plant, and then would i be able to bring it back with me to sydney?
i really appreciate your responses - at least i now know where to start looking.

As far as I know, you can bring Pandan into Sydney if you wash all the soil away from the roots.
Those that I brought in were 'soil-less' and the roots were wrapped in wet news paper to keep then alive during the flight.
Just declare them at quarantine if in doubt.
Cheers !!

Propagating them is not difficult even in Brisbane. I have had success putting the plant in water and roots will form in a couple of weeks and then I pot them out.
I am also trying them out in various positions of the garden. Two next to the shed getting morning sun, one next to my 22,000litre water tank getting some overhead sun and 6 in pots which I move to the greenhouse in winter. They all survived the very severe frost we had this winter but 3 weeks ago one of the pots just died over a few days. I cannot see any reason why it did this.

I thought Pandans are propagated from the tiny shoots/baby plants that arise from the parent plant.
So, for those who had success propagating it, please give us a bit more details of your propagation technique.
Thanks.

Rahaidi says...
I agree with Kim that there is a good strike rate of propagating these plants through water.

Your best bet as you say is to get it from the "pups" (those that are branched out in soil from the parent plant). You have a better chance if you leave the pups to grow to about 10-20cms tall. The more roots initially from the pup the better.

Before separating the pups soak the parent plant with diluted seaweed concentrate a day before just to give the plants a bit of zip before the operation. Sharp secateurs will do the job away from the parent. Get as much roots from the pups as possible. Wash away the excess soil from the pup and simply dip them in a bucket of fresh water. Make sure the leaves from the pup are above the water and let it sit for a week or two. Use fresh water daily. In about a week and a bit additional roots will start to form. When you're happy with the growth you can plant it out to a seedling mix that has good drainage. In between soak plenty with the seaweed mix to give it a better chance.

Note: Strike rate from the aerial rooted pups can be propagated but are harder to survive. Best way is to get the pups from soil.

Tips: For those in colder areas or in Winter. You can still grow them the trick is in winter to put them under cover away from wind and rain and water them sparingly. A lot of them die, not just because of the cold but the excess water from rain or from reticulation that is held stagnant at the top of the plant. The stagnant water combined with the cold in winter will kill the plant in a few days, so cover them and they will be alright. In summer the additional water soaking is no problems.

I have several of these grown pretty healthy this way in Perth near the coast but obviously under cover (shade cloth) amongst my palms. The leaves are prized in asian cooking from pandan cakes to rice dishes. One or two is all thatís need per cuisine.

Hope this helps

Rahaidi has described it very well. I have also noticed that the Pandan does not like full sun and the potted ones are under shade cloth.
I have a friend who has one growing in the ground and covers the plant with a blanket every night during winter season. Seems to work as it has survived for years.
Rahaidi, do you have a problem with mealy bugs? I use white oil for those on the leaves but I notice that they also attached themselves to the roots in the potting mix and these are hard to treat.

Hi Kim, I've only used white oil on the leaves for these critters. I haven't had them on the roots.

What you can do perhaps is to make a solution of confidor in a bucket and simply dunk the potted plant and leave the top free. Leave it in for about 30 mins and take it out and let it drain. That should fully saturate the pot with the treatment.

I generally do this process just with water for my potted plants once a season to get rid off excess salts and other residuals (from water and fertilizers) that build up over time.

Sorry Shaun but the ones that I have propagated I've given away already this season.

I've got some of the pups coming up but they're too small at the moment for separation.

Shaun I'm in coastal Mindaries.

Although these a tropical plant, they're actually very resilient provided the conditions mentioned as above being frost free/protected.

In summer conditions under shade-cloth patio/amongst other potted plants. Mist/hose the area to increase humidity and it will go off.

They prefer to be more pot bound so don't go big with pots but do provide quality soil mix. I've also added a layer of dried lupin mulch to retain moisture and to provide nitrogen in its breakdown.

Since we use it for some recipes I've only used slow release fertilizers and have spoilt them with weekly seaweed showers.

Only cut/use a few leaves at a time from the base. They're can get quite woody if you use too much I guess but they do like to set clumps. With these growing at various heights you will get a very green tropical/leafy visual display.

One of my favourite Malaysian dishes is Nasi Lemak which basically uses coconut milk with these pandan leaves thrown in when cooking the rice. The aroma is heavenly and with grilled fish on the side...yum.

With some interests perhaps its something that Daley's can provide in the future ?

I'd really like to get one or two plants. Maybe they could just be posted bare-rooted in a jiffy bag to save on freight? I'm happy to pay say $15 for two.

Let me know if that's OK and I'll send you my mailing address

Many thanks

To give you guys an idea of the price of Pandan plant in Darwin's weekend market ....
a 150 mm pot with a plant about 6-12 inches (??? cm) tall generally sells for approx $5.00 to $10.00 each (depending on size of plant), at the weekend market.
If you pick the wild plants from the roadside 'bush', then its free (of course).
Similarly, some locals will give it to you for free (or others may only charge a nominal $1.00 per plant if you dig them yourself) if they got Pandan growing wild in their backyard ....
just remember to wash off the soil, and wrap the roots in moist news paper when you take it on board the aircraft.

As far as I know, no nursery in metro Perth stock Pandan plants.
Many in Perth have search and 'comb' through all the the metro garden centres, but to no avail :-( .
You will have to get them from private collectors or growers in metro Perth.

If you know of people who fly-in & fly-out of Karratha to bring pandan to Perth for you, then I know of 2 houshold there who got Pandan in their backyards.

Cheers !!

I have just become interested in growing a pandanus. Although I am in a unit I have flourishing mango, paw paw, coconut, etc. There is no tropical plant that cannot be grown in the right microclimate in Perth. There are commercial mango plantations just 30mins from here and fruiting coconuts south of Geraldton which is cooler than where I am at Greenmount. I will check with a lady at Midland Sunday markets who seems to be able to get most things.

My Pandan will be 2 years old this September. It is the only one that survives of the 6 rooted cuttings that was given to me by friends in the Pilbara.
The other 5 that were grown in pots all died within 3-6 weeks .... this surviving one (that I thought was the weakest at that time of transplanting) was buried into a corner of the flower bed.
The Pandan's growth is very slow ...as slow as my Mundo grass .... only a few cm per 4-6 months. But after the recent rain, this Pandan now shoots up 3 little 'pups' at its base. I hope the coming cold weather would not kill it.

So, I need plenty of expert advice from those who had success with Pandan in Perth.
Looking forward to read your opinions in here.

Hi Juinata, I have a few spare pandan plants and could send one bare rooted through the post at $10 plus postage but for Victoria it may need a spiraling white fly freedom certificate which I should be able get from our local DPI&F. The Victorian authority phone number should be 0392109390. Is it a local call for you. If so please check if Pandan is considered a host for SWF.

How much are you selling your Pandan plant? Winter is approaching....I'm not too sure if itz the right season to try planting.

I'm in metro Perth, so if I were to get it thru you, it shouldn't be too much trouble right since we are in same state?

Any advice for planting pandan?

So I just bought a pandan plant today.

I've just got it into a self wateriing pot with good potting mix.

How should I nurture it?
- ferterliser requirements?
- Sun or shade?
- how often to water?

Any tips most welcome.

Hi everybody!
I'm so pleased to find pandan enthusiasts!
I'm the UK and can only find cut pandan leaves from Oriental grocery stores.I've only come across the plant from an Ebayer in Thailand and am unsure of our import restrictions.

I've dipped my leaves in some rooting hormone. 3 of these I've potted up in compost and another 2 I've suspended in water- just as an experiment.

Do any of you have experience with growing pandan from its leaves?

With the onset of colder/wintery weather upon us here in Perth, I recommend moving your potted Pandan plants to a sheltered location. Free from the cold/dry air as well as from the rain. They will certainly die quickly when the extra water gets trapped on their crown. If the upper leaves start to wilt then thats a sure sign. All you need is to move them under the gutters/eaves and just water them occasionally during the cold spell (but not on the crown).

For those that are north of the river I think there are oriental shops that might sell these plants. Ones I saw was a while ago at Girawheen.

Like palms these plants like to be pot-bounded, so try to pot them in smaller bags or pots.

Tip: Create your on bonsai bag for planting. Get any of your old plastic pots drill heaps of big holes (5 cents size) along the sides and bottom (the more the better). Cut up some shade-cloth material and place them at the bottom and sides. Add your soil and plant in. The extra drainage holes plus the shadecloth material will make the plants root out naturally with secondary roots rather than the tap/main root rolled around/pot bounded.

Hi guys, no probs happy to share the info.

With regards to the oriental shop north of the river. Its a Vietnamese local grocery shop along Marangaroo Drive in Girawheen. Theres a set of shops there and next to the Shell station.

Actually you might try your luck with any local oriental shop. Ask them if they have or know where they sell these plants.

Hope you guys have some luck in getting them here in Perth.

Hi Rahaidi

Thanks for the info...I know which shops you are talking about along Marangaroo Drive. Itz within the Newpark Shopping Complex isn't it? I used to shop there. Seriously, I never pay attention to those plants they sell at the Oriental shops. Now I think I'm going to open my eyes wide to see if I can find my pandan plant.

Hi! Rahaidi,
Is it possible to buy one from your reliable source as long as it's not too dear...I can keep it warm away from draught & frost in my small gh, hopefully it shld survive thru winter.

Hi Susan,
Do you keep your pandan plant in a gh/hh (hothouse)?...Give it TLC & for sure it'll survive...Good luck.

Juanita: Its getting warmer and I was thinking of putting them outside. They're just sitting on my south facing kitchen window sill for the moment.

Rahaidi: is this what you mean by soaking the roots in water?

Hi Susan, congrats on your new puchase. looks like you're doing the right thing. Leave it in there for a week and bit. Just wait until it grows some more roots, then plant it out. Remember to replace the water daily and not to overfill it. Make sure that the crown isn't submerged in water, otherwise it might rot out. Keep it in a relative warm area at this time with indirect light and its better to plant them out to pots when theres warmer weather around.

Good luck I'm sure you'll have success with it.

Hmmm.. one of my pandans isn't doing too well (its the one in the background in picture 2 posted 08/05/08) I think the roots were rotting so I've cut them off the stem :( I think there are some fine roots remaining. Does anyone know if I can dip the stem in rooting hormone and perhaps wrap it up in moss/cotton wool?

I've decided to pot up both my pandans as they were starting to look really sorry for themselves. I've dipped the smaller one (pic1) in some rooting hormone and am now crossing my fingers that both will survive!

I thought Pandan's botanical name is Pandanus longifolia .....
that was what the Garden Guru program called when they did the Gardens of Malaysia.

So, could Pandanus amaryllifolius be a different variety of pandan from P. longifolia?

Botanical names can change and rechange so I don't get too hung up on what is the current one other than making sure you are talking about the same plant. After saying that, the attached photo is of a plant identical to what I grow and use and what David Thompson of Sailors Thai Restaurant uses. These plants are in the Townsville botanical Garden Palmetium and marked Pandanus amaryllifolius. A search for longifolia did not give me a pandanus with edible leaves.

I think it is also listed somewhere as Pandanus ordoratissima (or something like that, with a meaning of having fragrance or smell).

Yes Anonymous, as that is what I thought it was years ago but P. odoratissimus is a bigger pandanus that flowers with a smell.

Juanita, that plant travels better than I do.The pot size looks OK if you can keep it warm enough. On that sized plant, up here you could expect plantlets next year but don't be in too much of a hurry to pot them up. Let their roots develop or they will sit in the pot and look at you for ages.

Those roots are fine as they are Juanita. Like most pandanus the roots act as props and putting soil around is likely to cause problems.It is the fine roots that need to be in soil. In the photo the soil level looks fine.The pot size looks OK just sit back till spring and keep it warm,soil and air.

I own a nursery in New Jersey. I always like to collect unusual plants. I have several plants from Australia. I was in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji just to find sources of plants. Recently, a friend of mine gave me this Pandan plant.I potted it but it is not doing anything.Does it need full sun? What type of medium should I use.Moreover, can somebody help me where to purchase this Worsleya plant. There is one person in Australia and he is very arrogant. I will never buy plant from this person. Our website is www.dragonagro.com.
Thank you

Hello everyone.

Didn't realize there was a whole lot of people discussing pandan growth here!

I was wondering if Roger still had any pups left?

I'd be happy to try pandan here in forsty Shepparton. I actually have curry tree, galangal, kencur, piper sarmentosum (kadok, boesenbergia and a sarracenia pitcher plant growing in my warm bathroom. I hope I can keep the pandan alive! Just love the smell of the leaves in cooking.

We can organize something but give it a month or two to get through this winter. What email address can I get you on?
With this interest in pandan we should be running a parallel chat on uses and recipes. Did you know that pandan leaves are suppose to repel cockroaches!

Never heard of that use! They smell so nice, funny that they should scare roaches!
I think your suggestion is a good one. I'll be patient and wait out the winter. After all everyone seems to be saying that we're in for a real freezer of a season.

My email is dktchew@hotmail.com

Been growing a few things like yacon, purple congo potatoes and some unusual fruits. Just planted some seeds for stir fry greens here. Hope it's not too late.

Thanks Roger!
Look forward to trying the pandan when it gets warmer.

Once this plant gets established it really spreads . Friends closer to Innisfail have massive colonies along creek banks that have withstood a few floods. I have broken of many pups a few times now , in just the 2 years my plant has been in the garden .
I was advised to plant it very deep .
It seems to lean over , and the ofsets root into the ground . I listed and sold several on ebay . But I think they need to be rooted well for any chance of success .
Winter would not be the best time for dividing , and I am not certain they would thrive in temperate climates without much pamparing .

I am trying to keep my hopes up .....
however, I think my Pandan plant that is planted in the garden bed may finally die this winter ......
it had survived 2 previous winters ....
but this winter is particularly cold and wet ....
and I noticed that the Pandan leaves have all gone yellow and 'wilting' in the cold ....
don't know if it is too late to dig it up and repot it to a more sheltered spot. :-(

Hi all , Yes I do have a couple of pandan plants spare but after finding the plant movement regulations on the inter net (the Govt staff I talked were not all that helpful) for plants into Victoria (I don't know about New South Wales)it looks like no plants can be sent from the north without expensive treatments and certification, unless they are going to be grown outside.It would have to be a unique location to grow a pandan, outside, all year round in areas that get any frost or lengthy cool periods. On the brighter side,of the hundreds of pandan plants that I have seen, the only pest to date is an occasional grasshopper taking a couple of bites out of a leaf.Has any one else seen any pests on Pandan? Attached photo is of a larger plandan I planted out in early June. It went backwards till 2 weeks ago.

Shaun sorry to hear that. All of my potted ones have survived being relocated under the eaves for the winter. They only had water once a week and their leaves are all healthy dark green in colour. Will have to repot them soon with all this sunshine about.

Meanwhile they have been given a soaking of seasol just to perk them up some more.

Someone mentioned that you can get them at the Canningvale markets so you could try there. However be cautious about buying ones that are too small. They might have been separated too early and subsequently might not have 'rooted 'enough. So greater care is needed for these ones. You certainly wouldn't want to take leaves off for cooking when they're too small as it would further decrease their growth at this initial stage.

I have pandan plant that looks like nearing the end of its live. We brought it all the way from Sunshine Coast and was thriving until about two months ago. All the leaves are wilted and drying. Is it dying? Do you think I can revive it? My husband cut all the leaves out in our desperate attempt to save it. It has few little 'babies' coming out from the sides not shooting from the root. Does anyone know whether at this stage it is worth removing one of the babies and take it inside the house (which would be much warmer)?

mine is in exactly the same situation. It is inside the brick garage with sunlight from windows and the door is closed most of the time. May be it is too cold in Melborne to grow this plant. My fourth attempt in 4 years

My Pandan in the flower bed that died had 3 'pups' (or babies sprouting from the main stalk) when it died :(
I was hoping that it would survive this winter, and I would get more plants from it ....
it is heart-breaking after caring for the Pandan for 2 years and see it survived 2 winters, thrived and bear pups, then it died 'pre-maturely' :(

Hello Jo Tjoa
Leave the plant as is, bring it inside and keep watering it. Add some manure and hopefully it will survive ! make sure when u water it, the babies get a drink too... Good luck.

Hi everyone,
So glad to find a forum full of Pandan enthusiasts!!! I'm also after a pandan plant.

If anyone (Andy, Rose??) have one to spare, I'd be happy to buy it from you. Otherwise, I might have to source it from that Brisbane nursery Pamella bought from.

Cheers,
Jasmine (spunkyjazz69@gmail.com)

My Pandan's in 'intensive care' at the moment, not doing too well this winter. I do have 2-3 babies sprouting by the side of the mother plant but I cannot be sure they will survive if I transplant them at the moment. I got to say, sometimes I wonder whether it is all worth the effort considering that it grows so well and wild back in Singapore/Malaysia.

I don't think edible pandans bear seeds & you can get lemon grass from BigW, Kmart, Bunnings or from any of your local nurseries.

May I know what kind of soil did you grow your pandan in. Does it have to be very free draining, like with some coarse sand in the mix?

Before my Pandan died this winter, it gave off a very strong aroma that almost perfumed the whole of the flower bed......
and that was the only time I could proprtly smell the pandan scent from my 2 year old plant.

Some 4-5 years ago I saw a large pandan tree growing luxuriently in Brisbane. It is worth considering planting in an exposed northerly aspect adjacent to the north wall, something which worked for a friend who managed to grow a curry leaf plant in Melbourne. Like the Pandan, the Curry Leaf is a tropical plant.

Hi Rahaidi,
Thanks for info on potting mix. May I know how long does the pup take to grow into a big plant, like when you can pick the leaves. It probably grow very fast in the tropics, I'm not sure in area like Perth.Is it alright to leave the plant out in the rain in summer? Thanks.

After separation and upon conditions the pup might take a couple of years develop and muture fully. In those early years you wouln't want to take any leaves off as they need it to well essentially grow and yes in its ideal world like the tropics it will grow quick and lush.

In Perth and probably for Melbourne the only trick you need to make them survive is to keep them in pots (so they're portable) and keep any moisture off them in the colder months. In summer the rains are fine but do keep them out of the winds and direct sun otherwise they'd burn and the winds will rip and crease the leaves. Best spot is under some underover/filtered patio.

I am in Broome at the moment .....
the Malay satay-man who gave me 2 Pandan plants many many years ago had passed away and the family moved to Perth ..... so all the pandan plants that grow free & lush in his backyard were disposed by the new owner of the house.
However, I had made contacts with locals here who may have plants for sale in 3 to 6 months time .... they are:
1) Fusion Herbs & 12th Mile Cafe @ Yamashita Street (@ 12th Mile, an outer suburb of Broome)- Number can be found in telephone directory.
2) Broome Organics, (owner is Wayne Howard) - Number can be found in telephone directory.
3) A few local town residents, whose number I cannot disclose in public forum.

Will discuss the difficulties of growing Pandan in Broome later ..... I am at internet cafe at the moment.

I hope to bring some cuttings back to Perth in a few days time.
So, please wish me luck.

I am suffering from a bit of time lag at the moment ....
so, I'll be brief....

There seems to be much trouble growing Pandan in Perth and Broome (and also in Karratha).
The only place where I know Pandan seems to grow trouble free is in Darwin.

1) Perth - my experience with a Pandan that grow in the flower bed outdoors for almost 31 months:
The cold and wet winter in Perth seems to be a major problem for Pandan plants.
They put out new leaves in spring, then get slightly burnt during the hot Dec-Jan heat spells, and by 'autumn' some new roots and 'pups' will emerge. It will survive outdoors if the winter is mild, and it is not exposed to too much rain.
My beloved 31 month old Pandan finally died during the last winter, as it was the coldest and wettest and 'longest' winter thus far.
The 2 previous winters were milder, drier and 'shorter', and the Pandan managed to pull through the cold months.
The Pandan seem to die from root and crown rot.

2) Broome - experiences and feedback from local growers there.
The heat and dry spells in Broome seems to pose a problem for Pandan plants.
Locals there seem to think Broome is too hot to grow Pandan properly. Some think Pandan may grow better in colder climate (this is contrary to the experience in Perth).
The leaves of Pandan tend to get burned and dried up in October, and most death of Pandan plants occur in Nov/Dec/Jan, despite constant watering.
Most of the plants' growth occur in Apr - Aug (and these are 'winter' months in Perth).

3) Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines - observations of sites that Pandan thrives:
Pandan in the tropics grow in full sun, and can be seen growing along ditches and paddocks.
Despite the heat in the tropics, the leaves do not burnt.
They grow in 'wet' soil and don't seem to suffer from root and crown rot.

So, it appears that Pandan plants don't like cold and wet winter, nor hot and dry summer.
Perhaps, warmth and humidity is the key to growing Pandan successfully.

Hi Shaun, sorry to hear about your loss. Its definately not a plant that you want to plant out in the ground here in Perth. Our weather conditions here are too 'extreme' for it too survive in the ground. However if you left them in pots under patios they will do very well. I have had mine for several years now and will repot them soon with the warm conditions upon us.

I got these from my inlaws who have been growing them in Perth for a long time. They had about ten plants ready to go before last winter but belatedly left them in the elements too long. They didn't survive. She hopes to have some later on.

So the story is leave them in pots under a patio. Put them amongst other potted plants to create the added humid conditions. Never leave them in the open. You might think from all this that is a hard-basket type of a plant , but personally I really think that the plant is easy to look after.

The fresh leaves are no comparison than the ones you get from frozen sections on the oriental shops and the aroma of the pandan plant itself is heavenly.

Yeos is an oriental merchant that sells takeaway food as well. Asians swamp the shop each weekend for the yummy treats and food, as well as to buy groceries.

This round eye joins in as well !

It is on Belmont Ave, opposite the ANZ bank both being on the north side of Belmont forum.

I am trying to grow Pandanus tectorius (those which are common on the beachfronts in Queensland) from seed. I have tried several methods - soaking the seed, planting it deep in a pot, letting it lie on top of the soil, half submerging it in a pot and leaving the tops out. I have had several shoot - the ones planted deep in a pot. They now have several shoots above the ground but on inspection, have no roots appearing yet. Has anyone grown these from seed, and if so, can you tell me how they progressed. I have planted another 40 or so seeds so hope to grow them successfully

I have 8 pulps (ranging from 20 to 25 cm long) which have at least 3 roots each without soil and 5 big plants with diameter of around 2 cm or more with extensive roots systems in soil FOR SALE.

they will not be ready for another month (or 2 weeks for pulps) because I repoted the big ones and the pulps are still rooting so I want to make sure they are ok before selling them.

Are you interested? pulp one $8 each, the big one $ 25 each pick up by yourself.

Just curious, but is there a possibility of grafting a Pandan onto a more climate suitable rootstock like the Agapanthus?

Would that even work or would the Pandan just end up inedible?

Incidentally, Pandan leaves drank for 3 months apparently will cure gout. According to old cures

PANDAN COCONUT : There is a variety of coconut called the 'fragrant coconut' which is exported,as such,from Thailand to Australia.
It has a pandan flavour and that is why the Malaysians call it 'Kelapa pandan'.
And the thais call it 'Marprow narm hom'or i.e. 'fragrant water coconut'.
If you want to know anything more,just ask.

Manda : It is sold in some Woolworths supermarkets ,and the other supermarket chains too , for about $2.
And also in asian shops.
Have you seen any yet?
Even if you do find it,the coconuts do taste better in asia ,maybe because the imported coconuts here are refrigerated and maybe fumigated or irradiated etc.

Hi Julie
I keep them in the laundry in winter, and bring them out on really good sunny days. In summer I leave them in half sun half shade on the balcony. You have to water it everyday. I also use osmocote as manure.

Hope this helps.

Hi Julie,

A little water everyday in winter wont hurt. No my laundry dosent have sun coming in.

I do leave the plant outside, on a sunny winter morning/afternoon and bring it in when the sun goes down.

Good luck.

Rahaidi Mate,

If youre still reading this;

Just saw your chat and great analysis of the care of Pandan leaf, I wonder if you could spare me one or two (And maybe even pommygranate)? I live in Perth and I tend to cook and I would really like to have some and grow and nurture some, I am happy to buy it off you if I can.

Just got myself a new home and would love add something that I like

can give contact if you are keen to help,

I'll be visiting Karratha soon ....
hope that my Thai and Singapore friends up there can spare my 1 or 2 plants to bring back to Perth .... fingers crossed.

I noted that that some Pandan's fragrance is different from others ....
some have a more herbal-wood (spice) tone to its fragrance, and others have a more flora-honey (sweet) tone to its fragrance ....
is it my imagination, or are they different cultivars of the same variety ....
any experts in this field out there, please comment.

Hi Shaun, hope you have some luck in getting the Pandans from up north. They should thrive up there.

With regards to the difference in fragrance, I'm not sure but I know that there seems to be two cultivars that I have that are different in terms of the length of the leaves. The longer leaf variety seems to be the authentic one and looks great and are the ones that I have been proagating as of late. However both generates the fragrance and taste that Pandans are renowned for in culinary dishes.

Linda the best way to induce offsets is to re-plant the Pandan to a taller pot so that it is potted about an inch below the neck. This of course should be done during the warmer months.

Hi Rahaidi,

Can you please let me know where I can get a healthy Pandan plant. I miss it very much in our cooking and find the frozen variety less exciting in flavour.

I have grown one before indoors but lost it to the white mealy bugs. Even with comfidor it did not work.

Hi Amy, sorry to hear of your loss, but having them inside the house is a challenge in itself. They much prefer being outside and getting some natural heat, sunshine and air. I find using white oil now and again helps the plant from leafy critters.

I had some propagated Pandans early in the season but they were quick to go with enthusiasts in Perth. I have another series of cuttings but they aren't as mature as the earlier ones. I'd rather wait until they have a good root set before seeing them go.

I would advise against cutting any leaves when they have recently been propagated. It will set them back. Better if you give them a chance to grow out making them bigger/stronger. Generally the following warmer season should be fine.

Linda we plant close to neck during the initial planting of our propagated cuttings. What we find is that they tend to grow a lot faster than planting them high. So my guess is that you can do the same with yours. Just make sure you use quality potting mix to allow good drainage.

Also give them good dose of Seasol on the base and leaves a night before repotting. Actually I find that they love this Seaweed bath, so if you mix in a diluted amount in your stock-standard 9L watering can to last for week, treat them a little of this and they will reward you with nice deep green and lush foliage.

Hi au0rey,
No, not the leaf. I was talking about the pups you separate from the mother plant. They normally do not have roots or very just a root or two. By putting the stem up(not the leaves) in water, the plant will put out new roots very rapidly and you can then pot them up.

What is the lowest temperature pandan can survive? It seldom frosts where I live but can get down to 35 F a few nights a year. Currently I have my pandan in a 30 gallon aquarium for the heat and humidity. I think it will outgrown that soon.

Not sure what is the lowest temperature it can survive. From my experience, we had a very severe frost 2 years ago. Cold enough to freeze the water in the hose I left on the ground and the 30mm of water in the bird bath. These were in the open away from the house. The pandan that I had in pots were in the greenhouse but those in the ground were planted next to the water tank and garage. They all survived. So the heat radiating from the water tank and walls must be enough to keep them alive.
Hope this helps.

This is to Kim,

Thank you. That does help. I will try one outside next to the house and attempt to keep it alive next winter. As it is so difficult to find a source for live plants, I'll play it safe and keep the other inside. It has only frozen the water in the fountain once in the 25 years I have lived in Whittier and that was on the upper tiers only. Perhaps it will be OK.

Hi Theany good to know that some of the tips works for others as well. Thats a very small plant you have there. Glad thats its pushing for growth now.

Lyn and Amy I have the last lot in 20cm pots if you're interested. I got a couple that are twin set as well. Some of the cuttings have been taken from some mature Pandans, so they should advance really well. Have a look at the pictures included. The height of these alongside the watering can will give you an idea of their relative heights.

All the best

Potting up to Induce Side Offsets (Pups):

Heres a recent set of pictures that I took to pot up a juvenile Pandan plant that was getting too tall with aerial roots. The plant was not cut short this time round as I want to make it spread out with side offsets. You can see the aerial roots coming out and if you look closely to one of the zoomed in pictures some of the offset nodal points (green buds) coming out. The plant was potted up using a taller sized pot and mounded slightly on top to allow better drainage. It was planted up to the neck to induce the plant with side offsets. Expect to see these coming through before seasons ends or before the incoming colder weather to which the plant will be moved to a drier location.

Hi Linda, you can propagate those offshoots that come out from above the plant with varying success. As long as they have some length you can snip it from the main, take out some of the older leaves starting from the bottom and dunk it in water (keeping the leaves/crown above water) to initiate the root set. Give it time for the roots to develop like the picture shown by TR above. Until then they can be planted as per normal (up to neck).

Actually I've also had some success with the tiny offsets that have just grown above the plant which are about 2 inches long. I simply twist these little guys off from the main and just plant it a mix and away they go. They take a little while to get going but they do survive and indeed become a full grown plant in time.

With all these propagation techniques you must keep the fresh water up.

I bought one from Ebay today - there are 3 left, at $11.00 each plus $8.50 postage.

There's also a larger one but it's only available for pick up from the Gold Coast. If you search for "pandan" it will turn them up.

Linda, I guess all plants are susceptible to some kind of diseases or nutrient deficiencies, however I've had much success with these plants. They're quite robust given the right conditions as mentioned from the posts above. The only tricky part is during winter where they have to be relocated to a drier spot. Other than that...easy

I'm wondering if anyone can clear up what seems to be a contradiction? How is it that you can keep a pandan plant in a jar of water, however if you plant one in a pot, you need to be careful not to over-water it?

I just find that rather curious...

Hi Lucy

I have been looking around at Asian stores and nurseries for pandan plants to grow in the garden. Have been unsuccessful so far. Am so happy to have found this site full of pandan enthusiasts. Would you let me know the costs to have them shipped to SYdney?
Thanks so much. My email address is : juli_yin@hotmail.com

Hi Devus yes I do have some left. Iíve sent you a post.

Ursula perhaps I can help explain the confusion. Basically we propagate Pandan cuttings via water in a jar to iniate the root set. This is similar to what we used to do as kids with slicing a potato and leaving it above water to generate roots in the water. Once you have enough root growth you can then pot the plant. This method of propagation is usually done in the warmer growing months.

With regards to over watering potted Pandan plants. I think the confusion here is the method of watering between the warmer and colder seasons.

In winter most plants do not like to be over watered. Especially tropical plants like the Pandan. During this time you want to keep the Pandan relatively dry/moist and out of the elements, watered (on the base only) say once a week and definitely do not water anyway near the crown of the plant.

In summer itís a different case. They love water, whether you drench all over including on the crown or just on the base. The heat plus water and humidity is the optimum for this plant.

As a guide before the onset of winter, relocate the potted Pandan to a drier, sheltered spot and leave it there for the whole winter.

lucy very kindly sent me a pandan with instructions, to boot. it arrived in very good condition, but is now showing signs of deterioration. it's in water, only the roots, and nowhere near the leaves. the roots are coming along nicely, but it's the leaves i'm worrying about. any advice opinions? as expected, the weather is cooling down.

Wow - thanks for the growing tips, Rahaidi. I tried to grow Pandan two years in a row about 15 years ago, and both times they died over winter, so I gave up.

I LOVE kaya (pandan-flavoured coconut jam, for anyone not familiar with it... give it a try - they do actually sell it in Woolworths) ...and lots of other Malay sweets... mmmm.... :-)

I'll have to go and see if I can find some at Canning Vale markets to try again (keeping them outside, this time, and making sure they don't get overwatered in the winter!) ...I kept them indoors before, thinking that they wouldn't like the cold.

...and then my uncle looked vaguely surprised and said that they go nuts in Darwin... (he used to live there and he and my aunt have seriously green thumbs...)

Cheers,
Liz

A message to all the Perth people looking for pandan plants. I finally bought 2 today !!

I went to Canning Vale markets, both the chinese shop and the Sunday markets and there were none. But a person at the markets said that you can get them from a chinese shop in Girawheen and voila they were there.

Its a vietnamese/chinese shop on Marangaroo Drive called Australian and Oriental Supermarket, in a group of shops. Cost $12 and there was still one left when I was there. They are at teh front of the shop, outside.

I just need tips on how to keep it alive !!

Hi,

Just read all Rahaidi's posts about caring for my plant over winter. So, I need to keep it under shelter outdoors and not water from the top.

I dont have a lot of other pot plants under cover, will be ok under the eaves by itself ? Should I cover it with a shade cloth ? And would a self watering pot be better ? do i have to put it on a stand ?

Also, i read i should water it once a week, should i just soak it in water (the base) to water it ? and with some seasol ?

Hoping you can help me Rahaidi ?

thanks
Jennie

Hi Jennie, congrats on getting your new Pandan plant. Hope it goes well for you.

Under eaves: should be good as long as its protected by wind and rain. You want to make sure that theres no chance in getting the crown wet from rain in the colder weather.

Shade cloth: Still the same as under eaves, in that you must try to avoid water landing on the crown.

All this applies in the cold season as mentioned before in the warmer months the way you water does not matter.

Self watering pot: Again for the colder months this method of potting might not be good as it continuously draws water from the basin keeping the entire pot wet all the time. In the colder season its best for tropical plants to be relatively dry/moist not wet.

Using stands for potted plants: Yes why not its always best to for any potted plants as it gives the pot a good chance of draining away the water as well as aerating the roots below.

Watering: yes once a week is good during winter even with seasol and definately water near the base and not on the crown.

They're pretty robust really. I think most people here kill them off because of too much water in the seasonal cold months.

Hope that helps

Thanks Rahaidi !!!

Just a few more questions:

How do you water near the base ? Do you mean the base of the pot or the actual plant ? If its the pot, do you soak it in water and for how long ?

I have put it under the eaves, do you think covering it with shade cloth will help as well ? or maybe I put a shade cloth around the pot only and keep the top clear ?

Thanks again !

Hi Raihaidi,

Since you're an asian, you know so much about this lovely Pandanus amaryllifolius. Love it for nasi lemak, kueh nagasari & hainanese chicken rice.Need your help about the plant before buying it.I intend to buy a plant. They have it selling over ebay from Malaysia to anywhere in the world. do you think it's ok to put it in the ground upon receipt (it's summer here now) & transplant it to a pot in autumn for bringing indoors? (we have cold winters here). If you put it in the ground, guess it'll be pretty prong to slug attack right?

thanks a lot for your help!

There is another segment of ABC Gardening Australia TODAY on INDOOR PLANT CARE, how to regconise if your indoor plant needs a drink and if it has been overwatered. The program will be repeated tomorrow after lunch. Anyway, it is a very good one to watch.

The small Pandan given to me by a local Malay living at South Hedland on May'09 did not strike .....
Guess it is getting too cold in Perth now for it to strike, I guess ......
but out of the 6 cuttings that I got from Broome in Oct'08, 3 survived, and seems to be doing OK .....
These 3 are the ones that I grow in well shaded warm area (behind a north facing fence) ......
The other 3 that was grown in full sunlight were killed by the summer heat .....
Hope the 3 remaining Pandan will survive this winter .....

The two pandans I got from Rahaidi at the beginning of the year are doing ok. They have been moved indoor since June. They are in my bathtub, because it is right next to the north window, great for the winter sun. I get them outside in the weekend once in a while when it is bright and sunny.

Hopefully they will survive!

Good luck.

Hi Linda. Sounds to me a winter thing to me. I get some of the leaves turning yellow to brown on mine too. I would take caution when the whole leaves of the plant start turning this colour but if its only some it they should be okay. My big ones are left outside in a sheltered place and I get some of the leaves with these symptoms. I don't get frost up my way but I would expect to get some leaf tips curling and turning yellow because of the cold morning air and moisture. Its winter time afterall so with less heat and amount of sunlight you would expect that these tropical plants be very much dormant. I haven't watered mine very much this winter as I'm weary of root rot as we in Perth have had very cold mornings as of late. With the week gone sunshine I have put some of the Pandans out in the sun, but with any chance of rain they will go straight back in. So for this time of the year, don't overdo the watering. Leave them dry. When you need to water them do so during the heat of the winter's day in the sun at the earliest time rather than in the afternoon. Take advantage of the watering supply them with a seaweed extract so it can taken up by the plant then leave it to dry until the next session. They require less attention really in Winter than in summer when these things are done.

Hope that helps.

Guess what? I found spider mites on the pandan plant! I'm using some white oil. Hopefully it'll get rid of them. Do you have any problem with them?

Hi Linda - u can use wettable sulphur for these. I always get red spider mites on my cape gooseberries for some reason. They love dry conditions - I find a good hard spraying with the hose (or leave sprinkler on) especially under the leaves - is a good way to get rid of them. Just do every day or so and see how u go.

Hi Linda,
I have been having a problem with Spider mite too.
Amanda gives very good advice.
I am going to keep the area well watered for awhile.
I have also purchased some predatory mites (Persimilis) from Bug Central (on the internet). Cost $43.50 for 1000 predators to do a standard garden.
I will let you know how I go when I get the predators.

Good luck!

Hi Amanda and Tiggerbow,

Thanks for the tip. The white oil seems to be working. I've moved the plant into a cooler room. When the days get warmer, I'll give the plant a good wash. Heard that the spiders like hot and dry condition.

Hi Amanda

The plant normally lives outside but because of the cold, I've brought it indoor.

You can grow pandan plant indoor in a warm room, large plant pot near a window or with plant lighting. Well drained soil. I grow it in the Fort Wayne, Indiana where the winter is well below zero Celcius sometimes.

etakes2,

I purchased mine through a member of the Rare Fruit Growers Association. I have had mine since last winter and it is quite healthy. Betty, the seller, grows hers in a greenhouse as the climate here is not optimal. Not having space for a greenhouse, I purchased a 30 gallon aquarium to house the plant in. Since it is enclosed I only water every other week. It has quite high humidity as I keep a dish of water in the tank. I also have it in front of a bright window so it gets enough light. I'll look up Betty's email number and send it to you

I grow it in a pot on the verandah in my Brisbane apartment. We call it rampeh and its used in Sri Lankan cooking. It dies back a bit in winter but comes back pretty well in summer. If you live in an area of Qld that gets frost, you need to bring it in during that time.

I think someone actually posted a web link in this thread, where Pandan can be ordered online from a nursery in Queensland.
It must have got deleted by the web master of the forum (because the other nursery is a compatitor???).
I still got the link from my web browser history, so I'll post it for those who wish to order the Edible Pandan:
http://www.elarishtropicalexotics.com/Plant-Profile.aspx?Plant=147&Group=11
Hope it won't get deleted

Here is a pic of the plant:

The Pandan used in cooking is known as "edible" Pandan in most nurseries.
There was a bit of confusion about its botanic name earlier in the forum .....
and I came across this webpage recently:
It is a palm nursery in Thailand ....
its catalogue and description clarify the botanic name of the "edible" Pandan (Pandanus amaryllifolius)
http://www.palmseeds.net/product.detail_27271_en_1137626

The other Pandanus were also described and pictured, namely:
P. odoratissimus http://www.palmseeds.net/product.detail_27271_en_208029
P. tectorius http://www.palmseeds.net/product.detail_27271_en_1270604
and other Pandanuses http://www.palmseeds.net/product_27271_en

Happy Reading !!

Forbidden fruits nursery in Mullumbimby has them for $30 in a pot (page 7 http://www.forbiddenfruitsnursery.com/products/index.htm ). I think they do mail order. They have been fine for me in the past, although sometimes their plants are a sold a bit premature (better than being pot-bound though).

Terry, your pandan is most likely not the amaryllofolius (cooking) variety. There are many plants in the pandanus classification that is from a meter to several meters high. Yours is likely an ornamental plant.

There was a faint pandan smell when i boiled the leaves. The root of the plant was matted like a ball at the bottom of the pot and it was quiet difficult get the plant out of the pot. I am not sure if this has got anything to with the stunted smell of the pandan. I have repotted the plant & I will wait and see. Ellen/ Theany have you bought any pandan?? from the canley vale nursery & is it the cooking variety? Any comments from the Pandan experts(Rahidi)re the stunted smell of the pandan.

Hi Terry

I've once passed by the florist shop at canley height shops. And saw that they did carried a big plant similar to pandan, so I went up and touch it, and pinched it to see if it is pandan, the cooking kind. It had very very light pandan scented, so I figured it is only in the same family but not the same genus.

So I never bought it. by the way Terry, pandan doesn't have bulb rooted. Yours must be the ornamental kind.

Last week Nguyet sent me 4 little pandan pups, I am currently soaking it to get it rooted for planting. And they're the genuine kind not the look alike Terry .

Cheers

Hi Terry, I bought one pandan plant on the 13/12/09, I paid $25 and it is only 46 cm high and it has two more pups on their sides. I wish to let you know all the pandan plants I have in my garden had the fainted smell; I brought 3 plants from Perth last April also have the same fainted smell. I believe that the smell will get stronger when the plan getting more mature. Why did not you ask Kim, nursery owner, he would tell you whether it is pandan or not.

Hi Terry, it would help having animage to look at but what you have described might not be the same Pandan variety described under this forum topic.

The height you've decribed seems different to ones we got growing. Even the very old ones we got barely reaches a meter high. They tend to go out laterally with pups growing on the side.

As people have mentioned before here even the true edible Pandan does not inhibit a strong scent in a pot. As someone said it you get a really strong Pandan smell when the plant dies or otherwise cut a leaf and let it stand for a couple of days (say in the kitchen).

I can get Pandanus amaryllifolus plants but I have never tried to grow them because I just assumed they would not cope with Melbourne's winter.
Now that I have heard that *you* are successfully growing them I'm thrilled!

For the Perth people, I just bought a Pandan plant 2 weeks ago from the little Asian Supermarket on the corner of Marangaroo Drive & Templeton Drive, Girrawheen. It cost $8 has has doubled in size since then, it's under the patio amongst orchids & getting watered twice a day in this hot weather. The man at the supermarket, told me to grow it in-doors, however I'm going to give it a go out doors as friends of mine had a huge one growing fully exposed in their front garden in the Beechboro area. The same supermarket also sells a small but delightful range of plants used in Asian cooking.

Once I been to Brisbane - China Town. One of the chinese herbs shop sold the pandan plant, unfortunately I didn't get it as someone nagging me.
They only sell them when the season. Maybe this is the right time.

Fobidden fruits, a couple of hours down the coast at Mullumbimby (or they will send it, or they sometimes have a stall at market days such as the BOGI market in Windsor), have them in stock. http://www.forbiddenfruitsnursery.com/products/index.htm, click on page 7. They are $30.

I got one of Rahaidi's Pandan plants last year and managed to nurse it through winter (it was looking pretty sad by spring) however it has now bounced back very well - particularly over the last month when I added some mushroom compost and placed in under the frangipanni tree where it can get good levels of dappled light.

It is now producing an aerial pup which I take it is a healthy sign. I know it is harder to get these to root - has anyone tried applying rooting hormones to the aerial pups to propogate them?

If I leave the aerial pup alone will it form a seperate branch?

Hi Grendel,

Aerial pups will eventually grow roots if leave them on the plant long enough.

The best time to remove them when there have some roots and at least 20cm long.

They are then soaked in luke warm water, change daily, in the shade for about 1 months until roots grow properly (big and tiny white roots).

Now, it is time to dust in rooting hormone and plant. The best time to do it is December/January.

If leave them alone then they will form multiple branches.

I have done it before and it was successful.

Good luck.


Happy growing.

re the PANDAN thread. . .Sorry! I haven't been through all the posts to check if someone has already offered this info. I've just received 2 pandans in excellent health from
www.allrareherbs.com.au (QLD)
Check out their website for costs, etc. and keep in touch to see when their mailing takes place! Very highly recommended! :-) I'm planning to keep mine in pots and inside during winter on the north side of the house. Fingers crossed!! Good luck to everyone who's trying to raise these lovely plants outside their preferred habitat!!

Hi Mary, yes I agree with Charles regarding plants undercover usually exhibit that extra shine. These were grown/bred undercover as they're tropicals. Nothing special with regards to feeding just a good diluted seaweed/chook poo tea mix daily. Especially during the growing months.

I usually put a spade worth of chook poo in my wheel barrow and add a cup or two of seaweed concentrate and fill it up to the top with my bore water. Its then left overnight and by next morning its ready to go. This usually lasts me the whole week for my potted plants and veggie garden.

I like to feed the Pandans this organic mix rather than using chemicals, as we use the leaves for cooking. Pretty simple but it seems to work.

For max growth try to put your Pandans in an undercover area that receives the most sun/afternoon sun.

These Pandans were grown essentially grown in an shadecloth hothouse and moved to a protected place during the colder months. In all cases they're protected from the Perth windy Swesterleys and the dry morning easterleys.

Dear All
I am very new to pandan plant. I had a pot from My friend 2 months back. I have been very careful with it, however, the leaves started to turn yellow and it hasnt been growing since 2 months I brought it back. Initially, I had put it in the open space, now I had relocated it under shade. I had attached the photos for your review. Did I do anything wrongly? What shall I do to make it turn greenery again.....Im so worry that it will say "byebye" to me. Thanks lyn.

JUJUBE FOR SALE IN MELBOURNE says...
Hi Lyn,

The plant looks healthy to me except yellow leaves. Most likely due to too much sun or lack of nitrogen. The only thing you could do is either give the plant some blood and bone or some NITROSOL liquid fertilizer (sold in garden stores) or some SEASOL liquid. it may fix the problem if nitrogen deficiency is the cause. Anyway I am sure from now on new leaves will be green. BTW, for newly planted cuttings it takes a bit of time to get the plant to grow more leaves.


For Melbourne and Sydney pandan growers, it is time to think about bringing your plants inside the house in bright,airy area away from heater points if the temperature outside at night is less than 15 degrees for more than a week. Also reduce water now.

Hi JP,

It may survive (50-50) if you place it in a vase with luke warm water, make sure the water level just cover the root not the leaves. Change luke warm water everyday for 2 weeks and see if your plant recovers from the transit and the sudden change of the environment.

Good luck.

Hi dina,
My current collection of Pandan came from Hedland, Karratha and Broome.
I know of 2 persons who had Pandan in Karratha, but I cannot post up their phone numbers in this forum.

I also know of 4 people in Port Hedland and South Hedland who has got Pandan plants. If you ask them, they will give you cuttings, and baby shoots.
If you are in Port Hedland, try to approach the manager of Hospitality Inn. He had many friends who grow pandan in the backyard.
Or go to Ayesha's Restaurant in South Hedland Shopping Centre, and the lady chef there knows of dozens of friends who has got the pandan plants.

Good luck !!

Hi, all pandan experts,

Thank you for all your last advice. It been 3 months, and my pandan is stil well. However, recently, I just try to transfer the pandan to another pot and added more blood and bone into the soil. I put it at the outdoor for sunlight but I forgot that the wind is quite strong. And when I realised that my pandan become slanted to one side and most of the leaves became very weak and soft. Instead of standing up, it had blended downwards. I have watered the pandan once a week using seasol liquid, however, most of the leaves are turning yellow. What shall I do?? Im so afraid of my pandan.......

Thank you.

Hi Lyn,

You shouldn't have re-poted this tropical plant during winter months. Anyway, it is a winter kind of problem. The plant looks normal to me at this time of the year, the soil is not too wet so it should be ok.

I would bring it indoor until the weather is warmer. In winter months, you normally don't feed these plants just make sure giving it some water sparingly and only give them some fertiliser in active growing seasons: late Spring, Summer and early Autumn.

For yellow leave problem, place them in Shade and give it some blood and bone in late spring but in your case you have already done that bit so the next time would be in December.

Good luck.

This cold winter has killed all my pandan collection ..... all 6 pots are dead !!!
I forgot to move the potted Pandan indoors when I went away in June/July.
They were all rotted and dead from the cold and wet winter weather.

3 of those Pandan had several small pups and I was hoping to propagate those pups to distribute to my fellow shipment syndicate members to increase the availability of Pandan in Perth when the weather gets warmer.
Now it looks like I have to start all over again.
I'll ask my Malay friends in Port Hedland for more Pandan plants when I go there later this year.

Sorry Jimmy, sorry Yong .....
you both have to wait another 12 months before you get your Pandan.

Hi Noris,

I bought mine where Bianca suggested in this forum (see above - 4 Jan 2010) earlier in the year (sometime in summer)...
at the little Asian Supermarket on the corner of Marangaroo Drive & Templeton Drive, Girrawheen. I was charged $12 for a small pot. It grew quite well. However, because I wanted it to get used to winter conditions, I left it in the open during the last winter, and a lot of leaves have withered. I think it might just be able to pull through ... (not sure yet, so keeping my fingers crossed).

Hi. I was just wondering, what would you do if the plotted pandan plant grows much taller than you want it to be? Would you cut its head and wait for it to start branching? If you do that, then the roots will continue on growing. I don't want to use a bigger pot because I have limited space at home.

And how do you get the leaves from the tree?(when you need it for cooking) Do you get the youngest leaves? One more thing, do you remove the whole leaf (i.e. from the main branch of the tree)? Or just cut the leaf?

Somage is it the leaf you want to buy ?
The plant would not grow very well in melb .
I just saw long rows planted out at a mates place , he propagates them and just sold 50 + plants [ all he had in stock ] . But I am sure his young son would harvest leaves . He already has many tree ferns he weeds out of the nursery , that he pots up and sells at a market for pocket money.

I just bought two pandan plants from the Canley Vale Nursery in Sydney. Both are doubles, with a big and a small plant (pups I guess) in each pot. They seem healthy and well established -- the big ones are 60 cm tall (above soil level). The ruler in the photo is 50 cm long.

Kim, the helpful chap at the nursery, said to:
- Pot them up to 30 cm pots in organic potting mix (he sold me Amgrow Organix Tomato, Herb and Vegie Potting Mix)
- Water them daily in summer with a water tray under the pot to keep them moist
- For local conditions here, bring them inside in winter (essential if you get frost)
- Don't let the central growing part get wet in winter (water the soil instead)

Fruitist, they were $25 each, singles were $19 I think.
I'm hoarding the plants until my wife returns from overseas so I've only sacrificed the rather dry tip of one leaf. The crushed smell is not strong but I recognise it as the smell of the green pandan sweets in Asian grocery shops.

For those Sydney-siders who are looking for pandan plants: I saw them at a shop in Cabramatta (next to the multi-storey carpark), about 30cm tall in 15cm pots. The seller wanted $35 for each.

Mr. Smith from Texas says...
I have recently acquired a Pandanus Amaryllifolius from a local nursery. It is Winter here with 10 Celsius outside temperature. I am keeping it inside the house near a window. The room temperature is 26 Celsius. I will move it outside in about a month. The plant is in a 1 gallon bucket. My question is how do you encourage the plant to produce pups? How do you make the parent plant form multiple branches? Thank you for any advice you all may provide me.

Hi Mr Smith,

This is what Rahaidi said earlier in the thread about making pandan plant to produce pups:

Rahaidi says...
Potting up to Induce Side Offsets (Pups):

Heres a recent set of pictures that I took to pot up a juvenile Pandan plant that was getting too tall with aerial roots. The plant was not cut short this time round as I want to make it spread out with side offsets. You can see the aerial roots coming out and if you look closely to one of the zoomed in pictures some of the offset nodal points (green buds) coming out. The plant was potted up using a taller sized pot and mounded slightly on top to allow better drainage. It was planted up to the neck to induce the plant with side offsets. Expect to see these coming through before seasons ends or before the incoming colder weather to which the plant will be moved to a drier location.

Does new leaves reproduce from the bottom of the stem or only from the top? My plant has 2 new growth from the bottom about 5mm in size. I have added more soil to the pot after reading the earlier post so I can't take a better picture.

Hi Mr Smith,

By looking at picture 2, I could see that a root has started to appear directing toward the soil and there should be a bud on that leaf node or will be soon. Leaf could appear from the top of the plant or from a bud at the leaf node.

Good luck.

Hi all,
Firstly, thanks for all the useful info about the Pandan plant.

I have a pandan plant and recently I found some pests on it. I think it may be mealy bugs (from searching on the net). They are white in colour and they're oval shaped.

What should I use to get rid of them? I have some pest oil, but don't want to spray the plant and find out that I shouldn't have.

thanks

Do you guys/gals know that Pandan leaves are used for deoderising confined spaces like fridges, cabinets, etc. I think some even feed the leaves to pigs so their poo won't smell much. May be I will try to be more observant next time I drink lots of Pandan flavoured milk.

Another fruit called Kepple Apple (Stelechocarpus burahol) has been used to that effect.

Hi Jony,

You could use your fingers or a piece of tissue or a cotton bud going through every leave to crush the mealy bug big and small and it will solve the problem.

Good luck.

Gosh, this is one long-running forum on just the one plant! I've come here looking for tips on keeping my pandan alive when it arrives from http://www.elarishtropicalexotics.com/
where I turned to cos Daleys does not stock it. I ordered (unintentionally!) the day Cyclone Yasi hit, and was thrilled to hear that they were back in business within days and have plenty of stock. I;ve ordered from them before but managed to kill the three pups after planting them in the open (they were FINE a whole week in their envelope on a table in my carport). I encourage anyone still shopping for a pandan to check out El-Arish and contribute to Queenslandś recovery!

Thanks for the info on mealy bugs, they seem to have gone. I find if I leave my pandan out overnight, I'll find mealy bugs there the next morning. But when I leave the plant indoors - no mealy bugs.

Di - I found this website which has great info on caring for pandan which might help you. http://www.mypandan.com/pandan-care/

Thanks for the blog link, but nearly all the information there was taken in context from this great forum...

Anything with mealy bugs use eco-whiteoil. That should get rid of them without being too toxic for the leaves.

http://www.rareflora.com/pandanusama.html

I also brought a few plants back from Hawaii. That species is called pandaus utilis, and not the variety common in SE Asia.

Dept of Agriculture allows export if all soil is washed clean. Wrap in wet napkins and enclose in a ziplock bag. I had some seeds, but they were all confiscated as there were "hitchhikers" in the seed coir.

The pandus utilis has dangerous spikes down the leaves, so care is needed.

Yes, I meant export from Hawaii into California.

My pandan are doing well, even though it is cold here. I keep them in the garage.

Just make sure the crown does not get wet, and keep out of direct sunlight. Three died because they drowned and got sunburn.

Hi Fruitist and coral,
they are open Sunday only, if you mean the Fleemarket, coral, which has plenty of plant sale people.
coral, is this a recent observation with the prize - about one month ago there was a man from up north selling them for $25? Maybe it is the same person, now it gets colder and I guess he want to sell the off before they struggle with the winter.

Hi Peter and Fruitist,

Canning Vale Market is like a flea market and opens only Sunday, just like what Peter said. I bought the Pandan 3 weeks ago and last week I went again, there were still some left. They also sell the little ones. With Winter coming up, I think it's best to get the grown plants to give them a better chance of survival. The plants are pretty healthy and so far my pandan are doing ok under cover.

Sorry for the late reply Galv.
Most Asians in Darwin will know Pandan plant, and you could buy them from the Fri/Sat/Sun markets.
Just ask you hotel receptionist for help and assistance.
It is usually sold potted, and you may need to wash away all soil materials before you take the plants into ACT.

Hi John Mc,
I'm interested in buying pandan pups if you have any spare. I'm in Belmont in Lake Macquarie. And if you are willing to sell me one, I would also like to have a look at your hydroponic vege garden if that is alright.

Hi Nadia,
the Pandanus you are growing is native and likely P.cookii. The Pandanus mentioned in this thread is an exotic species that does not produce seeds and can only be propagated by division. regards Kris

Hi Daniela,
I can supply bare rooted plants at $10 plus postage.
From now should be a good time to plant them.
Good soil in the biggest pot, plenty of water and partial shade especially in the afternoon but keep the pot warm.
Feel free to email me.

Hi Daniela, if you catch a train to Cabramatta (or drive there), you could buy potted edible pandanus plants from the Vietnamese shops there when the weather gets a little warmer (from Mid September onwards).

Hi Wardie,

Actually you can buy pandanus plant in a Vietnamese shop caled "Lucky" in Brisbane st, Northbridge. But they don't always have it, ask the shop keeper to keep one for you as soon as they are available. Mine is still growing but no new shoot they can give away yet. I just plant it few months ago hope it will grow well and I can give some for you. Let's see if summer spring can make it grow faster. Good luck with Lucky shop hope you can find the pandanus you have been searching :)

Hi Mira
thanks, will go and try my luck :) Bought frozen ones and the first batch was good with strong fragrance, but the second batch (darker leaves) has a different fragrance, unlike the typical pandan leaves that I am familiar with. Won't be using these again.

Mr. Smith says...
From one season, how many pups have you all gotten from one plant? I had over 25
pups from soil and 15 aerial so far. More are sprouting from soil and aerial.
The more mature aerial pups that I potted, now has 5 pups of their own. This is my first time growing this plant. I am wondering if this is normal. My mother-in-law has given away the majority of it. If you are in Houston, let me know if you want some for free. I am saving five to experiment with. Two more months and they are coming in the house. This is the plant from January 18, 2011. The original pot is inside the 5 gallon bucket. More soil is added to cover the original pot. This 5 gallon bucket has many holes drilled at the bottom and sides. We had a heat spell this summer and the leaves got burnt. I wonder if this due to the fact that I had removed 15 aerial pups from the area above and below where the cut line was. This area is badly scarred. The top portion was dieing in my opinion. I had to cut it to save the top portion with two aerial pups. The
pictures were actually taken one day after I had cut the plant on Sunday the
18th. You can see the top portion of the stem is wet in the picture, where I had
removed about 10 leaves. I just potted the top portion tonight on the 22nd. Hopefully more pups emerge from the buds on the stem seen in the last picture 7. This portion of the stem is now buried in a pot.

Picture 4: There are 5 live pups and 3 dead one by the cut line.

Picture 8-9: This is what the plant looks like on September 24, 2011. White roots are forming after two days in the soil.

Hi Amy,

I bought one pot of pandan plant and planted in the ground. Planted 5 months ago still growing but not really great to the point I get excited with new shoot or branches yet. Still alive i can see the green leave coming. The winter might slow them down hopefully the spring will make them grow perky. Hope your last pandan will survive and grow better in this warmer weather. Good luck with your pandan plant Amy :)

Mr. Stromung,

I bought it locally. The website is http://www.jrnnursery2.com/ I don't know if they ship. I don't know if it is the way I am growing it or if it is the plant. It is very prolific. Good Luck. The plant was $18 for the biggest (picture located at January 18, 2011 post) and $7 for small.

Ben,

I would love to help you out, but due to state and federal regulations, it is hard for me to do it. I don't know about California, but for Florida, I would have an inspection certificate with the plant to ship it. I have to be registered with the State of Florida and the State of Texas. Too many laws for a regular Joe to help people out. Again, I am sorry. I wish you were local. I gave 25 plants away already.

Have you two tried going to Monterey Park to ask around? I was there 11 years ago. With all the Chinese around, one would surely know where to find Pandan. Better yet, go ask the Vietnamese. I forgot what the local called the Vietnamese side of town.

Stromung,

Everything I know about growing Pandanus is from this forum.
Here is my experience so far. When I bought it the temperature was freezing, so I kept it inside of the house for about a month. I did not use any lighting but instead use the sunlight. I open the curtains. When the days were above freezing and not windy, I bought the plant outside. At night, I would bring the plant inside the garage. But if the temperature calls for freezing, it comes back in the house. During the summer, the direct sun of late July and August will burn the leaves. So give it some shades.
Soil:
I use Miracle Grow Potting soil with moisture control. I don't like it but that is what I use. It is my first year growing plants. The key is to use a well draining soil. If you don't, the root will rot. I played around with the pups that I potted and removed them after a couple months to see the results of the different soil mixture. I even put different soil mixture in the same pot. Where the soil mixture that does not drain well, the root will rot. While the well draining soil area, the root is fine. I am still learning. I use a balance 10-10-10 fertilizer when I remember. So it got fed 4 times so far this year. I grow another plant also. When the leaves turn yellow, I fertilize all the plants.
Watering:
I submerged the pot in a larger container. I kept the water level about an inch above the pot that the Pandanus is in. Check out the pictures above. The original pot is covered with additional soil and the water is about half an inch above the soil. Check put the pictures from Sept 22 2011 post. You can see the water line stain on the inside surface of 5 gallon bucket. Once I am bored of the plant, I will plant it in nice pot like all the other plants.
During the winter months, just keep the soil moist. Water the soil not the plant.

Hello, since you only uses seaweed fertilizer on all seasons, is that actually enough fertilizer for pandan? Or do you use another fertilizer in addition to seaweed?
As far as I know, seaweed fertilizer is 0-0-0
I am just curious because you have so many pups as a result
Thanks

Mr. Stromung,

I have never used Cactus/citrus potting mix. If it drains faster then Miracle-Groģ Moisture Controlģ Potting Mix, I would use it. You may have to resize your picture to upload it. I reduce my pictures by 75%. If you are using Windows 7, you can use Paint.

Hi Stromung, nice to hear these plants growing on another challenging continent and doing well, congrats.

With regards to using the seaweed solution as fert. It has been a success for me and the pandans seems to perk up using this tonic. I also use a fish emulsion solution every other week or so to give them the added boost during the growing season. The real reason for me to use the seaweed and fish fert I guess is because they are organic and safer for the environ. Don't forget that we use the leaves for cooking so it makes sense also to use the local and simple organic ferts to splash on the leaves. Just make sure that the seaweed is well diluted so that you can use it often.

The real secret of getting them to grow out (pups) is really as simple as what I have mentioned earlier in my other posts is to keep them pot bound, period. Once they fill out the pot they will shoot out and will produce pup aerially or shoots from the base. I guess itís a form of survival for the plant. Once you get into this situation you can start division and separate the pups and pot-up a little bigger than before. Never go big, other wise it will take ages for them to grow out and they donít seem to be as healthy and strong. I like to go to the next pot up thatís about an inch bigger width wise, so its just snug. This is what we have found to work well. Also invest in quality potting mix when you do this.

The other secret of at least keeping them alive in a challenging environment (cold wet winters) is not to plant them out in the elements. This is a definite no, no. They will eventually die off to root rot or crown rot due to too much water in the cold season. Donít forget that this is a truly tropical plant and as such a challenge to grow outdoors so keep them in pots. What has worked for me is to move the potted Pandans to a dry area like in my garage and water them sparingly during the colder months. They really donít need much at all, in fact keep them dry often during the colder spells. Iíve had a lot of success this way and by Spring they will go off. In the hotter months they love a lot of water/ misty conditions so you can drench them to your heart content.

Current findings to share: Last season I experimented in putting (not planting) one of the potted plants in my outdoor raised vegetable/lettuce garden of which was enclosed in a white mesh during summer and had the biggest growth success. It seems the added heat combined with the extra humidity under the white mesh produced the perfect conditions for growth. There was a lot of pups and it was pot bound by the end of the growing season, so I will give that a go again now in the growing season.

Hope this helps

R

Hi all,
so far I am ok with growing it - I just wonder now what to do with the leaves:
They are not fragrant when I crush them. I was told, that they become fragrant during warmer weather - or is it just that they develop flavour as they get cooked?
And do you cut/break they whole leaves off at their base or do you trim the leaves, let's say half and leave the rest of it on the plant?
I will cook some rice tonight - hope there is an answer by then if to harvest or not to harvest...
Thanks

Hi Peter, the ones i have don't tend to smell at all (maybe I'm used to them) or maybe it hasn't had a long run of hot days to get that fragrance going. But the one time you know is when one dies off and the typical Pandan smell comes out. You also get that typical Pandan smell after leaving the leaves out a day after being cut, but we tend to cut and cook soon after.

When cooking make sure you bundle a couple of leaves together and tie them into a simple knot to get the flavor out.

Hi Rahaidi,
thanks very much - I will cut and cook - I edited whilst you answered already my post: Do you cut the whole leaves or do you leave parts of it. And if you cut the whole leaf, how many you take (Half of them, less or more)? I am asking this, so I don't cause too much stress for the plant.

Peter, they're quite resilient as long as you don't go over the top and cut all the leaves in one shot. As we have many we tend to cut a few from one and use the others next time but if you only had one Iíd suggest to cut only a few at a time from the longer ones down at he bottom (never from the top) as these are the older leaves with I guess more flavor. Youíd also want to cut the leaves close the plant shaft. In the growing season any cuttings from the base could inhibit branching.

You donít need a lot and you could even harvest some and put in the freezer but as always fresh is best.

Thanks very much for your info. I took off 3 older leaves from the base, rolled it up and put it in the rice cooker together with the rice.
But: No Flavour, no smell! Should I have crushed them before?
Hopefully the fragrant component builds up over summer - otherwise I can only think I got sold the wrong plant, but I doubt...the plant is from Blooming nursery and they sound very experienced with pandan. That's where I heard that the weather needs to get hot before the fragrance comes.

Hi Peter,

If yours has no smell at all it could mean that yours is not the one for cooking because there is another variety look almost identical to the cooking one and has no smell.
I have seen the 'fake' plant, you would not be able to distinguish the real one and the look alike until you pinch a bit of the leave and test it out.

There are plenty of those wrong ones out there I was told. Hot weather will make the real plant grows thicker and greener leaves therefore smell stronger but the leave must have fragrant regardless.

Hi there, looks like everyone is either looking to buy a pandan or trying to keep the one they've bought alive! I'm in the latter category. Found my new one (bought from an ebay person based in Brisbane a few months ago) all yellow-lime green and with 'soggy brown" parts at the base (just above roots). Noticed it had a white fluffy web on the insides of the leaves as well, so did a search and it seems I must have mealy bugs. I've now soaked it in rain water, washed down its leaves, pulled the soggy bits and dead leaves off, Pest-Oiled the leaves, left it in the sun a bit to ensure the pest oil dried and... repotted it (ebay seller said to pot in 1/3 mushroom compost and 2/3 potting soil) into a smaller pot. I've given it a seasol drink and have made a humidity tray (pebbles, my old broken lecruset pan (noice decor i know - it's a sick bed I'm not fussy!), and have put it back in its position of shade mostly but a bit of arvo sun - dappled. Anyone see any striking errors in my rescucitation attempts that I need to fix urgently?

Rex, sounds like you have to give it time to acclimatise with

1. locational conditions and
2. seasonal change.

Don't know about the current temps going at NSW at the moment but sounds like you got to go easy on the watering (soggy brown parts). Give it lots of water and humidity when its the right time of the season otherwise you will get root rot. At least give the pot a chance to dry out first before applying any water including water in the pebble tray. What it probably needs now is a lot of heat and sun to get it going. Once the summer temps come in then I'd put it back in the dappled shaded areas.

Be careful of putting too much mushroom compost in your potting mix. This will be okay in the hot seasonal months where it will act as a sponge but in winter the potting mix has to have good drainage and to be dry.

Hi Rahaidi,

I have a big pandan plant which had been with me for 3 years now. There're some big aerial pups with long trunks and short roots growing from them. What's the chance of it growing if I cut it off the mother plant. Just wondering if you or anyone had any experience in growing one of these.

Hi Rahaidi,
do you know from where in Perth to source the real and fragrant pandan plant? As mentioned, I have two non-smelling ones from two different sources. At least I could practice with them how to get them through winter.
Now it's time to get real thing, but don't know where to look.

Thanks Rahaidi for this good advice. I live in the Northern NSW Coast (about 2 hours south of Brisbane) so hopefully not too much acclimatization needs to go on, but we'll see. I left the pandan on the humidity tray for a few days but it definitely didnt like it, so I've since pulled it off. I then broke all rules and whacked it in hot sun all day (to dry out the soggy soil). Which worked. And somehow the pandan seems to have survived that stunt. So now it has a dry-ish soil, has two totally brown leaves (possibly from the day in the sun) and its other leaves are striped yellow...I'm going to white-oil it again soon (bc i dont know if the mealy bugs have been fully killed yet). It's been raining here for 6 days straight now, but I've pulled the pandan inside to keep dryish, not soggy. Here's a few photos. The new growth seems green and okay...we might get thru this! I'll let you know how my pandan-doctor career goes...

I have some pandan plants but sometimes they are fragant sometimes not ( but not as fragant as the frozen ones that i usually buy from a vietnamese shop). dont really know why. maybe my ones are "fake ones" or just havent had enough sun to build up the fragance.

Hi Amy, nice to hear from you again. Sorry to hear of your loss. We did have a longish winter here in Perth. We've had some losses too but not as bad as the season before. Now with all the warmth of summer and good dose of water now and again these will start to rocket off.

I've replied via email with regards to your query.

Hi Rahaidi,
some in the forum (including me) have a problem that the plants do not have fragrance. Two possibilities are mentioned:
1) The pandan plant is a non-fragrant similar species ("fake pandan")
2) Someone's pandan plant sometimes smell, sometimes not

I have one from Blooming nursery, the other one from the Canning Vale market and both are absoletely non-fragrant.

What are your thoughts on this please?

I have seen them in SE Asia and commonly in NEQ and have never noticed a fragrance.Asian folk who use them regularly gave me one 18 months ago and it is now 1m with its first pups developing.I just raced to the garden and tore up a young leaf and there is no distinctive fragrance at all.

Hi Pete, I cannot say much with regards to the so called fake ones, but I believe the fragrance issue is not so much about the variety but more so to do with the climate. It tends to emit the fragrance in warmer weather thatís for sure. That would explain why some smell and some donít. I know that when the plant is stressed the fragrance comes out readily. How to tell, well during the warmer months simply ease off the water and keep it dry for a day or two. You will find that the smell starts to become strong.

The other indication of smell is one that you try to avoid at all cost and this is in the colder months. Overwater during this time severely stresses the plant and will cause root rot. Signs include crown droop and the death knell is when the strong smell of pandan comes about.

So it seems from this you would say that the smell comes from the plant being stressed from either lack of water in the warmer months or too much water in the flip side.

Instead of making the distinction that the ones you got might not be the real McCoy, you could try the suggestion of not watering it for a few days (consecutive 30 degrees C days) and see how you go. Otherwise the other way is to use them in recipes that includes the leaves as an ingredient. Youíd definitely know the taste of pandan. You could even cut a few of the older leaves (from the base) and leave them in the kitchen bench overnight. It should start to emit some smell the next day.

I guess I donít tend to smell my lot because either Iím accustom to their smell or I donít stress the plant too often but I know that theyíre good because we use them a lot in our cooking.

The variety we got originated from Xmas island many eons ago it seems.

Hope this helps.

I just had a look at a journal article available online. The fragrant substance is stored in papillae sitting just underneath the first layer of cells on the underside of the leaves and I think what I can see on my leaves (with a 10X magnifier) are plenty of these papillae. The whole underside is of a more shiny, lighter colour because of these!
So if the stress response is correct, I would expect that the fragrant ingridient is especially produced under stress and released by mechanical injury/cell death. This fits very well with the observation that rubbing the leaves, storing leaves or a dying plant releases the fragrance...as long as the papillae have stored the molecule/s responsible for the smell.

yay, I just got pandan from canning vale markets from the oriental shop across the carpark from the vegie/meat market etc. they had 2 sizes for ~$12 and $16. not a lot of plants there, so no guarantee if its a far drive. no fragrance yet.

@Peter - just saw your query about yeo's. address etc is here http://www.yellowpages.com.au/wa/belmont/yeos-oriental-gourmet-12637809-listing.html . I don't know anything about their pandan.

@Rahaidi - I'd be interested in seeing if there is any/much difference with your xmas island genetic stock. can you email me via myfirstname _at_ anize _dot_ org ?

The pandan fragrance is often not evident until
1. the leaf is bruised and warmed. eg crush a leaf in your fingers, put it in your pocket and forgetabout it fo a while....you'll smell it after a while.

or 2. when it's crushed and heated in food . eg coconut milk etc.

or 3. old leaves that have died or partially dried on the plant.

so if you have doubts about a plant , nip a bit of leaf off, crumple it and put in yout pocket and take a whiff of it (or your fingers) about 20-30min later...
yoou should know for sure then.

as far as genetic variability, most plants I've seen (Sri Lanka, The Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia etc.)
seem to be very simmilar, if not clones the same ancient cultivar.
I believe this to be highly likely as the plant seems to be sterile and Humanity has a tendency to distribute useful plants far and wide.

Yes, I asked other people as well and they don't smell it either. On the other hand I smell a meal cooked with "proper" pandan without problems - well that's why I am initially after this plant, because I love the smell. I can also smell certain rice like Basmati, which has been found to contain the same ingridient...

The first two pictures are of a 7 inch Pandanus in a 6 inch pot. There is an Echinacea purpurea in there also from seed. The Pandanus amaryllifolius has 4 pups at the base (in soil) of the plant and 5 aerial pups. I wonder if the pot is too small? I think I will put it in a 5 gallon bucket soon.
The last picture is of another cultivar of Pandanus amaryllifolius. It is not fully grown yet. There are three plant in the pot.

PandanDoc says...
Two things I like to contribute to the forum.

A. The following is an info sheet I gave to friends and customers who obtained pandan plants from me. I hope it helps those who are interested in cultivating pandan in temperate area.

CARE OF PANDAN PLANTS

1. Please remember that Pandan are tropical plants, they love hot humid weather and hate cold dark winter months in Sydney; therefore the most critical time in taking care of them is during winter. Many of my pandan plants died in winter months in the past. It was usually due to either exposure to cold weather or over-watering. Nowadays, I bring my plants indoor in mid autumn, when the night temperature falls below 10C. I think the plants can survive temperature as low as 8C, but I donít like to take chances. I put them outdoor in mid spring when the weather warms up. When the plants are indoors, please keep them in the warmest part of the house with plenty of light. Do not put them near a heater, as they donít like dry heat. They like heat and humidity. A bright sunroom or bathroom is a good place to keep them.
2. In winter months, I only water my plants once a week or less, I wait till the top soil is dry. As I already put water storage crystals in the potting mix, there is no concern about the soil drying out too soon. The roots of pandan plants rot very quickly when it is cold and wet.
3. If you donít want your plant to die, please remember 1 & 2.
4. Pandan plants need the outdoor sunlight and heat to produce new shoots. In summer, they can survive direct sunlight but the leaves can become yellowish if exposed to very hot dry summer sun. I find it best to keep in the brighter part of the garden but out of midday sun. Donít be alarmed if the tips of the leaves become yellow.
5. In summer, water the plants frequently and apply fertilizers. I use a mixture of water storage crystals, Dynamite Lifter pellets, Osmocote for pot plants and a good potting mix during re-potting; and I continue to use Osmocote and Dynamite Lifter as fertilizers during the summer months. I donít think it matter what fertilizer to use. It can even grow with its roots fully submerged in water, like some water plants.
6. I donít usually have problem with pests. The only pests I come across occasionally are white mealy bugs. So watch out for them. At the early stage, I dub the bugs with alcohol to kill them. If there are a lot of them, I spray ďEco Pest oilĒ to get rid of them. Another way is to immerse the whole plant under water for 1-2 days to drown the bugs (do this only during summer months). Apart from those mentioned above, I donít use any other chemicals on my plants.

7. The above are my personal experience in looking after my pandan plants over the last few years in Sydney. I welcome any suggestion and ideas. Enjoy your cooking with pandan.

First written 2002.
Revised 2009.

B. Regarding Pandan plants with no fragrance, I came across them in a house in Roebourne, WA last year. They looked like any large Pandan plants, thrive in the tropic but there was no fragrance. It must be a different variety.

Hi Rahaidi

Would I be able to buy some pandan pups/roots off you? Have used the island's pandan leaves before from island neighbour's yard and I've been looking out for something here in Geraldton since 2005 and haven't found anything except frozen ones :( not the same, not fragrant at all, well, has a little bit of fragrance, not much. My email add is eeling1@hotmail.com for contact and further details.

Waiting with baited breath...

Oh, btw, the neighbour I mentioned, they use to have theirs behind their house from direct sun facing west. When the sun rose from the east, trees along the incline kinda blocked it and plus they had a large tree kinda blocking the full sun. Was lush and very green grown in the ground. So, I would conclude it was part shaded.

Hi all (special shout out to Rahaidi),

I bought a mine from Rahaidi a few years ago and it was surviving really well until now. I just got back in mid-Jan from my month-long break and it seems that my pandan suffered the summer heat under the care of my house-sitter. Most of the leaves dried up and I managed to salvage a little pup about 10cm tall. Had to practically cut off all the leaves off the mother plant so it's now basically a stump.

I just removed the pup from the mother plant and kept as much roots as possible and repotted it back into the same pot. It's a big pot so the 'bald' mother plant is at one corner and the pup on the opposite end. I did trim off some of the roots from the MP because it looked like a mess and I wasn't sure if some of it was rotten. The pup is still green but new shoots seem to dry up as soon as they emerge. The soil is moist, plant is under shade (due to the extreme heatwave) and I did give it a bit of seaweed extract to toughen it up.

Should I repot it in another pot? I noticed ants on my plant today. Do you think it's one of the cause? Please help.

Thanks.

Hi Adelene, your Pandan situation sounds like it was due to heat/water stress rather than due to the ants specifically. With all this heat in Perth at the moment, it will distress any plants to no end without water. You have to keep them wet all the time in the middle of summer.

If the the plant is still drying up even though it has been watered well in the growing season then it could be due to a similar problem that another grower had as of recent. Amy got some Pandans from me a while ago and mentioned it was all doing well but some leaves started to dry up and die off even after regular watering.

My guess is that the plants have not been repotted with a new load of fresh potting mix. When this happens much of the fine bark material eventually composts away leaving the potting mix either as slurry when wet or hard panned when dry. The porosity of the potting material will be reduced because of the composted materal being eroded away. Poke your finger in a few cms down and check. The condition might get worst when the pot has not been re-wetted for awhile making watering difficult next time. You can also get salt and other residual buildup in the soil over time. Clue to this is dried whiteish colour from the bottom of the pot. Burnt or dried tip leaf tip ends might also be the due to this. So donít re-use the current potting mix to plant to your new pot otherwise the condition will still be the same. If you have ants in your pots it means that the conditions are still dry. Ants do not like any soils that are a moist. It might also mean that the ants are there because of aphids build up in the plant itself. So check to see if the critters are there and take them out. The ants will not kill your plant directly but will hinder the plantís growth as they support the aphids growing on the leaves.

The best time time to repot is in the growing season of Summer. Get a pot that is slightly bigger than the current one and taller is better than wide. Buy quailty grade potting mix for the new pot. Take the opportunity to separate the Pandans for your collection. For instant addition just select the pup offshoots with roots and simply cut away from the mother plant and repot. You donít need to do the water dunking for this situation as the roots are already there. Pot up right to the brim of the lowest set of leaves and you will find that new shoots will start to emerge later.

Perth at the moment has been in a heat wave, however if you give plenty of water to the Pandans they should be be thriving at the moment. This is the best time for growth with all the heat around for these plants, just continue giving them water and keep them wet at all times in summer.

Thanks Rahaidi!

This morning (before I saw your reply) I repotted the mother plant and the pup in different pots. I halved the existing soil, added some peat and mushroom mix (can't remember the exact name but it was mushroom something) and replanted because I was told that you must keep part of the existing soil during transplanting- maybe not for pandans...I don't know.

I noticed that there were messy webby white roots at the bottom of the pot and removed them. I haven't changed the soil since April last year so perhaps it is time for a new potting mix.

What would be a good potting mix? Am keeping my fingers crossed coz I can see really tiny pups forming on the mother plant.

p/s: Attached was my pandan taken in Dec last year.

Adelene, stay away from adding peat and mushroom ammendments into your pot mix. This will be okay in the warmer months but will kill the plant in winter as the peat/mushroom will hold too much water and will make the roots rotten. I'd get the best/premium potting mix that is already bagged up for you to use from Bunnings. Sounds like theres a good chance that you can salvage from the mother plant if you're able to see tiny nodules growing off the plant. I would change over to a new potting mix especially when the new leaves are still showing signs of burn.

My pandan is dead (I think), the mother plant is a wooden stump but there were streaks of green at the trunk so I think it's probably not dead dead yet. I did buy the premium potting mix as advised. One of the nodules dropped off *sigh*

I have been watering it but is it possible that it's suffering from root rot?

Hi Guys & Gals,

I just bought a pandan and tumeric plant last Saturday at the Newpark Carpark Girrawheen morning markets. $5 each, not a big plant. Hopefully it can make it thru the winter!

Will try to take photos of it later on.

Cheers

I just saw some pandans in Canning Vale markets. They look like pandans but unscented- not even when I rub my fingers on the leaves.

The ones I got from Rahaidi were scented.

Btw Rahaidi, I bought a few pots from you last time and the one I gave my friend appeared to be different from mine. After 2 years hers just got bigger (her leaves are longer too) but no pups whereas mine had pups everywhere till it 'died'. Do you have a few types growing in your place?

I've got the two types it seems. One is definately the longer leaf type and the other shorter but more vigorous. Both have the same Pandan fragrance qualities.

At the moment I've got them all propagated so that they'll have a good run thru the upcoming cold season. I've had a lot go this season so hopefully I've got some good ones to go for those interested next time.

After ringing around Brisbane and not being able to find anywhere local that stocked them I finally managed to source one.

Bought this at Templex Nursery in Algester. $25- I was a bit of a drive but the lady there was super helpful and they have a large selection of varied fruit trees.

There were about 5 more left and all were in good condition. The longest leaves are about 30cm.

I have killed 2 samplings already and am about to get my 3rd plant from El Arish tropical exotics(not giving up on my pandans !!) I was wondering if there is any other good tips on keeping my pandan alive in the current Autumn/Winter besides keeping it indoors in a pot, make sure that I don't water, make sure its in a sunny but not too hot spot ? Thanks

Hi Mavis,
I have my pandan plant in a plastic bag or big bottle and sit in a warm spot, indirect sun, watered probably only once in winter with warm boiled water. Uncover the plastic/bottle once or twice. Make sure the soil is not water logged i.e. it drains well. I try to provide a tropical atmosphere for the plant. It had worked well for me.

Hi John Mc,
The one I gave you was the fat, wide leafed and short. Mike gave me the Thai one a couple of days ago.

Hi Mary T,

It takes at least 6 months for the pandan plant to get established in the tropic, longer for cooler area. If I was you I would bring them inside the house from May to October, place the plant near an area of indirect sunlight and water from the saucer, not the top. Anyway, your plant is doing well. Good luck.

I think 13c is chicken feed for the pandans and even durians and mangosteens can handle 9c or 10c alright.The lower tolerance could be closer to 4c or 5c.

Hi There, I have just got my pandan plant and was so excited with it. But I noticed that the leaves are getting yellow ! Was wondering why this is so ? Is it too hot or too cold or too much water ?? Would appreciate if someone can help to advise me on how to keep it healthy as I have killed 2 previous saplings already and this is my most promising plant yet.

Thanks - Mavis

A week in a dark box tends to do that Mavis .. bad time to be buying tropicals right now .. poor babys will struggle to re-establish now its cooling down . Pandan needs to wilt a few hours or even a day before getting the strong smell . Do not think there is much varition .. sometimes mine smells divine , other times hardly smell it at all ... hey lets start a new one takes ages to scroll down .. wish newest post was on top ... makes it so much easier .

If you're on a pc you can jump straight to the bottom with ctrl-end. Ie press the two keys. Ctrl-home returns to the top

Mobile devices I'm aware of this on jail broken iPhones and Android's dolphin browser has a gesture shortcut for top and bottom of a page.

That said, this feature change request has been around a while. I still prefer one searchable page than lots of little topics to try find info

Hi Mavis,
please refer to my post on this forum on 18/1/12 re caring of pandan plants in general. Sydney is having a warm spell,but watch out for cold nights esp if u are living in the west, put your pandan out in the sunshine during the day, don't over water the plant, take it indoor at night unless your are near the coast. Hope this help.

help, not sure what's wrong with mine!
Is it because of the dryness or am I not doing something right?

Well, Adelaide's winter was crappy, so I water once every 10 days, put it in my bathroom before I shower for some humidity. But it still has that yellow tip!

By the way, anyone had luck propagating pandan from its leaves?

thanks

I would really appreciate if maybe if you could drop by and see what I'm doing wrong in growing this.
I've got mine inside a mini greenhouse at the moment and have attached 2 solar powered led lights to give them light when it is dark. My plant is still alive but looks a little unhealthy.

I'd be interested in one but you don't post.
It's easy to post plants if you change your mind, when I post, I remove the pot and replace most of the soil with some damp coco-coir to lighten the parcel, wrap it up tightly so the roots stay damp and throw it in a cardboard box from the PO with some crushed newspaper as padding. They arrive alive and well.

Hi All, I just got my Pandanus plant from Bonnyrigg Garden Centre NSW! The larger plant is $39.95 and the smaller one is $22.95 the smaller one is in desperate need of a new pot and mostly yellow but the larger one are so healthy looking and very mature. Planning to keep them in the house during winter. Some of the smaller plant are producing pups so with a little TLC, i am sure it will come right :-)

JUJUBE FOR SALE IN MELBOURNE says...
Hi Chongchai,

If your plant has been in pot and not root bound then you do nothing, just give it some bone meal or anything that high in nitrogen (NPK formula in fertilizer bag or bottle where N number is high) only in warmer weather but not in winter. May be some seaweed water direct to the soil.

In winter, bring the pot inside with saucer underneath, place in a bright area but not near heater and add water to the saucer occationaly nothing else. DO NOT WATER THE LEAVES IN COLD WEATHER.

Good luck.

I read from internet there are 60 types of pandan plants.
I saw some of the photos from the internet, and realise that some of them actually can grow very tall. I aware those that can grow very tall are also pandan plant. The type of pandan that I want is those that use in Asia countries e.g. Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia where we use in chinese cooking as well as in the Malay cooking. e.g. the chinese use it to cook the Hananese Chicken rice, the Malay use to make the Katupak. It has nice fregrance. In Singapore people also use them as insect repelance. People will put them in the car, cupboard to get rid of the cockcroaches. I want this type of pandan plant.

Rahaidi,
If you had bothered to check your facts-
http://www.yates.com.au/garden-expert/answers/pests/5705-confidor-tablets
before posting your DANGEROUS RECOMMEDNDATION TO USE CONFIDOR ON AN EDILBLE PLANT you might have spared poisoning an unsuspecting person or their child - who knows how much damage you have done

The laws you have broken include:
Poisons Control Act 1964
Regulation 20 C: Health (Pesticides) Regulations 1956.

In future do not give advice unless you can be quite sure it is sound.

Really Think First, there is no need to be so rude especially when Rahaidi has been so generous with sharing advice. Your information is for confidor tablets. If you had bothered to check YOUR facts, this confidor spray http://www.yates.com.au/products/pest-control/insects-concentrates/bayer-confidor-garden-insecticide-concentrate/ is safe for use on edibles (read about the witholding periods). Possibly this was the confidor Rahaidi was referring to. Anyway, the advice was to just dunk the potted part in the solution leaving the top free.

Hi, I'm new here and currently staying in Perth. Such an interesting chain of discussions on Pandan plant. I'm wondering is there anyone who (eg Rahaidi, or Nick) is willing to sell the extra Pandan plant to me in Perth? Been searching and checking the Internet but none of the nurseries are shipping the plant to WA. If there's any, do drop me a note at wseamy@gmail.com. Thanks in advance.

Kitten says...
Hi, everyone. I am in L.A. California. I located a Pandanus Amaryllifolius. I plan to buy and cultivate it for the leaves that I hear repell cockroaches. Have any of you had this work for you?

I will receive a plant ten inches tall plus roots. I read that Pandan plants do not make it at times. I want mine to survive and thrive. What exactly, step by step, can I do in the first weeks so it will be likely to do well? I am new to growing plants. I need detailed help on absolute basics.

I have a southern and slightly western exposure. Sunlight is good and lights the room a little. On my small patio of 5 x 15 feet I have full unblocked sun, except for a foot-wide strip of shadow near the building. I have no yard. It is about 58 F. here now at night and 75 to 80 F in daytime. Summers can go up to over 100 F. or more. Winters may at times get cold enough to freeze at 32 F.

I am interested that someone said they are growing a Pandan in a thirty-gallon acquarium, near good light of a window, with water inside a bowl for humidity, and it works well. This sounds like it is expensive. Do I need to do this? If so, I need a lot of specific advice on the details of how to do it.

Another person interested me when they said they planted the Pandan in water rather than soil or planter mix at the start, and it was working well. Is this the best idea?

Thanks so much in advance for any help you can provide.

Maylyn says...
Hi,
I'm from San Diego, California. I ordered and received a Pandan plant 5 days ago in a FedEx package and it survived the trip. I put it in water for the first 2 days and then transplanted in a pot of soil. Since then I have been watering it 3 times a day and kept it indoors and sometimes outdoors in the shade. Now it is wilting and I don't know what to do! When I use a moisture sensor, it shows WET. Today I decided not to water it thinking it might be too wet. PLEASE HELP before it dies on me!

Hi Maylyn, watering it three times a day is excessive, especially when just transplanted. You could've got away watering that many times if your'e in the middle of summer but it looks like you guys are heading into early spring there. Try to leave it in a dry warm sheltered place outside for the moment and back off the watering and see how it goes. Looks like its got a good chance to survive as the new crown growth in the middle looks healthy.

When transplanted ones turn out like this, I normaly cut away the wilted outside leaves. I find the wilted leaves eventually weaken and turn yellow/brown anyway and the Pandan comes back strong. Don't forget to spray them with some seaweed extract to help them perk up.

Good luck

Thanks for answering my question, Rahaidi and sternus1. My intention was not to drown it. The supplier from Florida suggested the frequency of watering and I guess it was based on the weather there which is currently much hotter than San Diego. I will water it once a day and hopefully it will survive the "in"experience!

Hey guys,
Like some of you, I'm looking for a couple of pups to plant - would anyone have any to sell reasonably please? Not sure if I'm looking for seeds, pretty sure the edible daun pandan doesn't usually propagate by seed. But if I'm wrong (garden beginner), I'd be more than glad to have seeds to grow from as well.

Thanks!

I live in Victoria. My pandan plant is protected in the cold months by keeping it inside a stainless steel wine rack covered with cafe curtain material. The pot is surrounded with a reptile heater mat with a timer. The whole thing is covered with a blanket and kept under cover in the night. Leaves are sprayed with water regularly and the roots are watered very sparingly. I am very satisfied with the growth and have 2 pups.

Hi everyone,

Thought no harm to ask..

So wondering if anyone here has a spare pandan plant [the one for cooking] to swap for baked/steamed goods if necessary. Can't afford $$ to buy one as they seem to be selling above $10 and I feel bad as it is when my store bought re-grown died..

Email me at
Grace.utting.77@gmail.com

Thank you,
Grace-yi

Hi,

am thinking of bringing a pandan plant from Asia to western Europe in May (by plane). Several questions tho:

1. should I get the short leaf or long leaf variety?

2. would it be fine to bare root it?

thanks

Hi just wondering if anyone can help me get started with trying to grow my own pandan in Karratha? Happy to purchase specimen from Darwin or elsewhere in WA. Not sure if I purchase from online sellers, they seem to be from East coast Australia or Malaysia, doubt they will get through WA quarantine...

Mr Smith, I know it has been 4 years since our post about your pandan plant. Have you by chance any more pups to give away? I live in Houston and I am interested. I also saw you on Houzz website. Thanks.

Oxley Nursery had a few big ones quite cheap a few weeks ago. they were about $20 IIRC and had multiple offshoots, so you could get lots of plants out of them.

Need some advice about the pandanus amaryllifolius plants!

I am based in melbourne and summer starts today...should I re-pot or plant it in the garden?And why does the plant have no fragrance, is it because it's still small (20-25cm)?
thank you in advance! appreciate all the help.

Hi Skye, If your plant have no fragrance it is likely that you have an ornamental variety. Try to crush a whole leaf to double check. I believe they are tropical but with care can also grow in subtropical area. I have a plant in the greenhouse that died in winter even if I kept it protected and in the sunny part of the greenhouse. My first plant died when I left it outside in winter. It does not like getting too wet and too cold in winter. So I won't recommend planting it outside in your area. If it is not the fragrant variety, I suggest to sell them as ornamental tropical plant and start over.
