a dead looking Pandan plant (pandanus amaryllifolius).
Fellow Pandan growers/lovers, should your Pandan plant for whatever reason (you went on vacation, you forgot to water, the cat ate most of it …) look quite dried and dead, do not yank it out of the pot and dump it in your compost pile. You will be surprised what a tough plant it can be.
I plead guilty. 😳
I left this poor thing, for almost 3 months, in a pot which I had used for propagating younger Pandan cuttings with roots. It was an “old” parent which I thought had lived its productive potted lifespan and would dry up and turn to compost on its own. It proved me wrong.
Now it is getting worm poop, seaweed juice, 1 hr mild morning sun, grow for mama encouragement, the works!
It is my born-again Pandanette.
