Cyrtostachys renda, Lipstick palm,  Palm merah, Pinang merah bangka

The contrast between the rich green of the leaves and the brilliant scarlet of the glossy leaf bases makes this clumping feather palm from swampy lowlands of Malaysia and western Indonesia one of the most ornamental of all palms.
It needs constant hot weather for the color to develop properly.
The sealing wax palm grows to about 20 ft (6 m) tall and has the reputation of being rather difficult to transplant.
Cultivation: They require a tropical climate with year-round humidity to grow well, and rich, constantly moist soil.
Propagate from seed, which must be freshly gathered.
