Comments and Curiosities

Of the many species of Pinanga, P. crassipes is certainly one of the best and most colourful. As a small plant, the leaves are blotched and mottled, as a mature plant, the seeds are bright red and produced in great numbers. All in all, a superb, easily-grown tropical beauty that everyone will want in their collection. (RPS.com), edric.
