Pandanus - Screw Pine, Veitch Screw Pine

Screw pine becomes a rather large plant. It grows best in bright light but needs shade from bright summer sun. An east window would be a good location. Keep the soil evenly moist in the summer but drier in winter to prevent root rot. Ideal temperatures are 62 to 65 degrees at night and 80 to 85 degrees during the day. The plant tolerates low humidity. If repotting is done in late winter.

Propagation is by removing and rooting suckers when repotting. Root them in slightly moist medium with 70 degrees bottom heat.
