Comments and Curiosities

There are two subspecies; Nenga pumila var. pachystachya, and Nenga pumila var. pumila (See Category Index).

"Clustering palm from Java where it grows at high elevations. One grower in southern California has managed to grow this palm in her backyard, but it's pretty marginal here. Very slow growing palm, too. Has a lot of color in the stems (green) petioles (yellow) and crownshafts (brownish tomenetum on yellow-green)... and leaves a deep, emerald green. Grows up to about 22' tall, a few feet taller than the 'normal' variety of Nenga pumilla." (Geoff Stein) Editing by edric.
