spectacular red new leaf, and the bat shaped leaflets.


Distribution & Habitat:

New Guinea rainforest.


Very attractive, single trunked Ptychosperma with caryotoid (bat/fish-tail shaped) leaflets, and brilliantly red new leaves.


Probably the most attractive of the Ptychosperma's.


Warm, sheltered and moist. Unfortunately, rather cold sensitive, so it prefers at least warm sub-tropical conditions.
