One of the Sunshine Coast’s most iconic plants, the coastal Pandanus tree is under threat from dieback caused by a combination of crown rot fungus and infestation from the Pandanus plant hopper Lamella australiae, scale and mealybug.
Sunshine Gardens has qualified and experienced staff who can provide advice to assist you to diagnose your plants and through biological, physical, cultural, and chemical control, repair your Pandanus back to a healthy state.
Pandanus dieback symptoms include:
- Small yellowing heads
- Many dead leaves in or under the head
- Black fungus down the trunk and branches
- Have yellowing speckled leaves
- Have tip dieback in the centre of the heads
- Have some heads dying and dropping off
- Have white scaly residue or larvae in the dead leaves
- Have very thin and spindly trunk and branches
Sunshine Gardens provide advice on treatment, maintenance and ongoing management to bring your Pandanus back to life. A healthy Pandanus should have large grey and green heads, no dead leaves, thick trunk and strong branches.
Sunshine Gardens is a business initiative of Sunshine Butterflies, which helps to cover the day to day running costs of the disability charity and ensure the programs and services are top quality.
For a donation of $100.00 to Sunshine Butterflies, we can provide you with advice and support on pandanus treatment. Contact us on 07 5470 2830 or [email protected] to book your consultation appointment.
