Also known as the Wild Areca or Pinang, it's a native of India as well as South-east Asia. This is a fast growing palm with ringed stems and a lush crown of dark green feather fronds.
It thrives in tropical and sub-tropical regions and found commonly as an understory palm in the tropical rainforests. Its peculiar feature is that its inflorescence of small cream coloured flowers are lemon-scented and the oval fruits upon maturing turns deep red or scarlet.
Also, upon nearing the clump I heard lots of bird activity among those shady fronds and bunches of delicious fruits.
It's an attractive palm, easy on maintenance and with the right amount of indirect sunlight, this plant is a delight in any garden or space. And the birds - well, that's the bonus...
