Description

Cibotium barometz, also known as golden chicken fern and paku ayam mas in Malay is an evergreen fern with a creeping rhizome which produces fronds that can grow up to 2 meters tall. The rhizome is prostrate, stout and densely covered with shiny brown long hairs that appear like a golden-haired dog. It also has thick stipes which grow up to 1 m or more with triangular shape in transverse section at the base. This fern has many medicinal purposes. In China and Malaysia, the hairs of its rhizome are used as a styptic for bleeding wounds (Flora Malesiana, 2020). It can be found on open hill slopes and stream banks in tropical evergreen forest from 500 - 800 m altitude and in lower mountain forest from 1000 - 1600 m altitude. This species is widely distributed in Malaysia, Singapore, China and Indonesia (iNaturalist, 2020).
