Today was a very, very good day!!! While I was out on my adventures for the day I guess I happen to turn my head at the right moment because I have been by here a million times and never seen it before but, there stood an amazing "click here for more info"Screw Pine ( Pandanas utilis ). I adore this tree and was especially ecstatic when I looked a little closer and saw that there were millions of seeds on it and the ground around it. I have never seen the seeds of a Screw Pine before. I think that when they are on the tree they look like large pine cones, and off the tree they look and feel like cows teeth. As I began collecting seeds off the ground , because I don't know if the cones were ripe or not, I noticed a little sprout!! I am sure you can imagine my excitement now!! But then I saw another one, and another one!! I pulled out my pocket knife and began digging them up! There were singles, doubles, and triple bangers that range from 1 inch to 6 inches! Here are some pictures of some of the sprouts, seeds and the first pictures are the mother tree!!
