Abstract
Ti (ki in Hawaiian) is the common name for Cordyline fruticosa, which is found throughout tropical Asia, Australia, and the Pacific islands. Ti commonly grows in moist, semi-shaded areas in wet valleys and forests on all the major Hawaiian islands except Kaho‘olawe. It is the most popular Cordyline species as an indoor potted plant and is used extensively by florists as cut green foliage for flower arrangements and decorative displays. It is also used as a food wrapping. This publication covers all aspects of growing ti in Hawaii.
