Default anyone familiar with pandan?

Anyone here try growing pandan? I'm wondering if it could grown successfully in semi-hydro versus in the ground.

I have never grown it, but in my experience, terrestrial plants take to S/H culture far easier than do epiphytes!

These plants are seen growing next to river banks. I reckon they would have no problem in semi-hydro.

The only thing is .... these grow up to be pretty large trees, right? hahaha

Unless I'm thinking of the wrong plant. I'm thinking of pandanus ...... the ones that grow the fruits that look like huge pineapples ..... but not pineapples.

Yes - there are different varieties of the pandanus, the one you are thinking of may be the h-unpronouncable one. The one I'm considering is the edible one, amaryllifolius, it can get big, too. I was going to put it outside since I have a lot of shade and my soil seems to stay wet (been two months since I watered), however, we get a couple days when it gets too cold for the plant (apparently an immediate kill) so I'm considering options. Some internet tells me this plant is impossible to grow indoors, but rest of internet says it's easy to grow. There are times when I do not like the internet Small ones are orchid-level expensive!

I've seen a few videos on youtube where people were doing larger plants in SH, without the drain holes, they are just filling a big pot lined with a garbage bag with water to a specific level, and the plant in a leca pot is dropped in. Kind of the same thing I guess, just a bit of a pain to care for, and I suspect they'll get root rot faster once the roots reach the reservoir since they are not flushing the water as often, thus preventing aeration in the standing water.

I have grown several large tropical plants in S/H using a regular plastic flower pot with tray.

I just watered until some liquid accumulated in the tray, only feeding monthly. Twice a year, I'd lug 'em outside for a very thorough, plain-water flush.

You can buy very sturdy large pots at a pond store (lotus pots)

i.e.
Laguna Large Lily Tub (MPN PT977) - Best Prices on Everything for Ponds and Water Gardens - Webb's Water Gardens

Lowes and Home Depot sometimes have them as well.

For mobility, you would need to set this on a base with sturdy wheels as they are pretty heavy filled with dirt/water:

Cool, thanks. One of the interesting things I'm going through now is determining whether to put the houseplant in SH or an inorganic-based "gritty mix". Plants seem to do fine in either provided they are properly attended to during the change.
