Pandanus amaryllifolius (Edible Pandanus)
Daun Pandan RampeRated 5/5 based on 5 reviews.
P. amaryllifolius is a low growing (under one meter) plant with long narrow blade like leaves and woody aerial roots. It can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping and be used to hold creek banks. However it is most widely cultivated for use in Asian cooking and basket making.
It has a nutty botanical fragrance and is most commonly used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food.
Also useful in flower arrangements. We have an article on pandanus amaryllifolius here: http://nqheliconias.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/buying-pandanus-amaryllifolius-online.html

Pandanus (edible)By: Alice on 14 February 2017Plant arrived in good state. Planted it in pot but not looking too good. perhaps Melb weather not so good to grow this, have tried twice already. Quite sad if not successful again.
Hi Alice, we have an article on growing pandan. if you can control the climate you'll have a better chance of growing them. No, Melbourne is not a good climate for them but the middle of summer is also a terrible time to order them. We have some customers grow them successfully out of the tropics and subtropics, other are not. If three times isn't a charm you probably should wait until you have a greenhouse for them before trying again.
