Calamus species; 
 
 
 
 

FRUITS OF CALAMUS SP:   I am sure you all are familiar with cane furniture, but you may not be aware of the fact that Calamus bears small fruits also. I saw a beautiful art work made wtth the fruits of this plant. This is the time of Durga Puja in Bengal. They construct beautiful pandals for this purpose. In one of the pandal the main item used for decoration was Calamus fruits. They must have used few lacs of fruits. Attaching 3 images to show some motifs of the work done. The last image is to show the details of the fruits.


 
Pictures of Palm For ID: I saw this plant growing in Tala village.

Looks like a decorative plant.
photographed at  Tala Village, Umaria Distt. M.P.

Date of photography 10th October 2011
Plant size about 10 feet. cluster of so many plants.


This may be Calamus thwaitesii or Cane, a climbing palm of Westren ghats. 


Calamus sp. for sure, but since the leaf sheaths are naked (devoid of spines) chances are less for this being Calamus thwaitesii.

Are you confident about the identification of this species?
I feel this species something different from Calamus thwaitesii.
It is also feels like Calamus pseudotenuis.
You please send one fruit photo for confirmation if possible
Please note two more points:
1. The edges of leaf show any narrow projections?
2. The tender leaf show yellowish or red tinge?
