Sweetleaf plants & Pandan plants7 December 2019Very happy with my purchase. The plant arrived last week and I potted them immediately - it is doing very well. This I believe is due to the advice contained in the 'How to Care for your Pandan Purchase Plants' article. I'm glad I read and followed it.
