Borneo rainforest.


A small to medium sized Licuala with light green leaves.


Not commonly seen in cultivation, however its variety 'Mapu' is very, very popular with collectors due to the spectacular mottling of its leaves.


Warm, sheltered, and moist position. Tropical conditions preferred, and slow growing.
