|The Pananus genus consists of dioecious evergreen trees and shrubs. Grown primarily for their tough, toothed foliage that forms a spiraling rosette. Male and female flowers have no petals and are borne on separate plants. Female flowers resemble small pineapples when fertilized. A specimen plant for landscapes that do not drop below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, this unique plant may be grown as a houseplant in some cases. Grow in full sun where humidity is moderate to high. Water moderately and fertilize monthly from spring to summer. Water minimally during winter.
