Salacca dranfieldiana


This is an extremely rare palm which very little is known.  Indigenous to Borneo.  It is perhaps best described as resembling a very dwarf version of Salacca magnifica.  The most interesting feature or fact concerning this palm is that it is dioecious, meaning for seeds a male and a female plant are necessary.  There are no female plants known to exist, so, as in the case of ours, all the existing plants are vegetated offspring of a single parent.
