Salacca sp. magnifica minor (Minor Salak) is an extremely impressive palm, with very long (to 20 ft), undivided leaves. It is a clustering palm, which doesn't trunk. Very spiny. A truly stunning palm which is slowly becoming more common in collections, but is still very expensive. Prefers warm, sheltered, lightly shaded, very moist position, tropical climate, but plants can be grown quite successfully in the warm subtropics. Fuzzy fruit are edible.

Salak palm is cultivated for its fruits, the bulk of which are consumed fresh when fully ripe. In Indonesia the fruits are also candied ("manisan salak"), pickled ("asinan salak") and fresh unripe ones may be used in "rujak", a spicy salad of unripe fruit. Mature fruits may be canned. The seed kernels of the young fruits of the Javanese "Pondoh" form are edible. A closely-planted row of palms forms an impregnable hedge and the very spiny leaves are also cut to construct fences; the leaflets are used for thatching. The bark of the petioles may be used for matting.
