How to Care for Pandan Plant

10 years ago

A friend of mine gave me the gift of a pandan plant for Christmas. It's in a small pot, looks root bound and has yellowing and wilting leaves. I'm pretty confident it can recover only this is the first time I've ever seen a pandan so I don't know anything beyond rudimentary information. I know it likes humid environments and shade. I know it's used in cooking but what I really want to know is how to keep it alive and help it recover:

What kind of mix should I repot it into?

How often do I water it?

What ferlizer will it accept?

Information on the net and in books is pretty sparse and my friend admits he doesn't know how to care for it either.
