This species is seen by many people as the most beautiful palm species in the world. This is of course due to the special, bright red trunk and petioles, but the leaves are also very decorative. Originally the species grows in the tropical flood forests of Thailand, Malaysia. and Indonesia, making it resistant to flooding. In these areas the palm can reach a height of 16 meters, but in cultivation the species remains a lot smaller. The palm has a slender, slow growth with multiple shoots and forms the red color at a young age. When taking care of it, it is important that the humidity is high, the soil is constantly moist and well-drained, and that the temperature is between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.

In English, the species is often called 'Red Sealing Wax palm'. because the red color resembles the wax used to seal letters.
