Comments and Curiosities

A small, clustering palm from the understory of rainforests on the Malay Peninsula around 800m (2600 ft.). Its small leaves hold only a few glossy, fishtail-shaped leaflets. The fruits have two curious, horn-like lobes on one end. It is undoubtedly best suited for the humid, tropical garden but will also take periods of cooler weather. (RPS.com) Editing by edric.
