ORIGIN: Found from Borneo, Java, Malaysia, Sumatra, the Phillipines and the Iriomote Islands of Japan in lowland and lower montane forests at elevations of 100 to 1500 meters.

DESCRIPTION: An evergreen, small sized, warm to hot growing terrestrial with a fleshy creeping rhizome carrying to 8, spiralling in a loose whorl, elliptic to ovate, acute, fleshy, hairy appearing as velvet, dark bottle green with 5 longitudinal and many reticulate veins of gold leaves that are purple green underneath and having a clasped at the base, grooved petiole. The plant blooms with small, insignificant, non-resupinate flowers on an erect, terminal, to 8" [to 20 cm] long, inflorescence. In Java a juice is made from the plant and then dripped into the eyes with the thought to increase proficiency in the art of writing.
