Figure 1. S. dransfieldiana in Semagoh National Park, Sarawak.


Distribution & Habitat:

Borneo rainforest - in a single lowland alluvial flat.


A small, clumping palm, with simple notched leaves. It is dioecious, but female plants are unknown, so it is thought that all the existing plants are vegetative offspring of a single parent.


A very attractive plant for the tropical/warm sub-tropical garden.


Warm, sheltered and moist. Can take temps down to 3°C, but doesn't like it.
