Most commonly grown of the Calyptrocalyx- this is a smallish, suckering species with only partially split leaves. The new leaves open with a brilliant red-orange to a maroon coloration making this a wonderful specimen for the smaller tropical garden. There are fine leaf forms as well as the normal partially split wide leaf forms
