You can replant it whenever you think it's getting too big for the fish tank. You could probably grow it in the tank for another year or more if there is space for it.

I have some Pandanus utilis seedlings here and this is another real cool plant. Like P. tectorius this plant also grows up to be a small tree, but it takes a while.

duff Thanks everyone!

@Hydro - yes! There is one that is just starting to grow. Do you think it is time to move it to a pot? If it is, Any chance you have a replacement for sale?

@ Soup - I do mist it every other day and then wipe down the leaves every 2 weeks or so as they tend to get a little dusty.

@ Airstond - HA I have a huge collection of them! I keep adding more to the same 24" pot I have out on my patio - Its the one plant I can't kill!

Yeah you can just pot it in regular potting soil and treat like any other houseplant. Don't let it dry out, but don't overwater it either. Try to give it the brightest light that you can can. It will be real happy if you put it outside in a spot with afternoon shade during the summertime. P. tectorius eventually grows to the size of a small tree, but that will take several years. Pandanus are really cool and unusual tropical plants, but they are pretty easy to grow as houseplants. I have a little collection here of six different species. Pandanus don't have very much commercial availability, so I had to hunt around on ebay and various online forums to get them.

Here are the stilt roots of the P. tectorius in the koi pond at our local botanical garden.

Wy - I will do a thread on the other tanks this weekend. All this talk of terrariums has me inspired! I have tried for ever to get a good shot of him. The wood in the tank has a hollow spot in it and every time I pull out the camera and take one shot, he's gone in a heart beat. I'll keep trying He's quite handsome with his flowing fins and bully attitude. He mows through all the shrimp at dinner time like a fancy yellow little bulldozer

Wy Renegade Looking good, but I want to see threads on those terrariums as well. How about a shot of the pleco, up close and personal like?
