A most amazing, clustering dwarf palm with thin canelike stems and tiny, undivided leaves that are intensively mottled in purplish brown and yellowish green tones in young plants. In older plants, the mottling slowly disappears. Native to the understory of rainforests on Borneo, it is rather slow growing and requires a protected spot under established canopy in the humid tropical garden.
