Common Names:



Borneo (Sarawak) lowland rainforest.


A medium sized, clumping palm, to about 3-4m tall, with simple, notched leaves. It is dioecious, but male plants are unknown, so are all the existing plants vegetative offspring of a single parent ? This is unlikely, because the species is quite widespread throughout Sarawak.


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


Warm, sheltered and moist.
