|Araca are monoecious palms found in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Solomon Islands. They cannot withstand temperature below 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
A slow growing graceful palm reaches 80 feet in the wild. Grown indoors as a container plant it is kept in check. Seldom blooms in cultivation.
The seeds contain arecalin, a stimulant, and are the betel nuts that color the teeth and mouth red, when chewed.
