Desperately searching for Pandanus utilis!

Recommended Posts

JenRiot321

Hello! Been a longtime lurker and my desperation to get this plant has led me to finally make an account!

 

I’m looking for a smaller sized tree, anything from maybe 5 gal to a large seedling size.  I have reached the end of the internet trying to get one to me here in San Diego and have still had zero luck.  You know when you get obsessed with that “one” plant and need it more than any other?  Pandanus utilis has become that one for me.  Not sure why it’s been such a long, fruitless search, but anyone who might be able to help me out would be soooo appreciated!  Willing to pay cash or trade for any number of the rare plants I have. Please message me!

 

Cheers!

Jen

Do a quick search on plantant.com, I see at least 30 listings for that plant.  You don't need an account to do a search.  D'Asign Source, Action Theory and others carry small ones up to 10' and larger.  I'm not sure which will sell retail and are certified to ship to CA.

Thank you so much! I had come across plantant.com randomly but didnt didn’t realize it was such a good resource and worth signing up for an account! I emailed quite a few of the nurseries with listings and have already got responses!  I had also checked junglemusic.com and could have sworn I saw that p. utilis was currently unavailable.  I must have looked at an old price list or maybe he updated his current list since I checked. I literally reached the end of the google search results and still hadn’t found a source, and with one post here I already have several! You have no idea how much I appreciate you taking the time to help me out. Looks like i’lI have my tree soon! Thank you!

You're welcome!  I randomly ran across this listing in the "For Sale" forum, Josh-O might have some available semi-locally!

      I was at Fairchild's nursery and came across this neat little guy... does anyone know what species it is or has anyone ever seen another like it? Thanks in advance!

      From seeds, I really ignore how it becomes, can you post your pictures?

      These pandanus are located in the former Julatten palmetum.
       
      These two monsters are originally from Papua New Guinea and are planted close to the house. 
      (apparently the caterpillars  on the vine are more interesting)

      For scale my partner Claire is standing between the roots.

      I'm not a big fan of variegated pandanus, but this one deserved inclusion.
