Dayak Onion

Dayak Onion, Bawang Bukit, Mala Bawang or Bawang Huma are among the names for this plant. Its scientific name is Eleutherine palmifolia (L.) Merr and it is a medicinal plant that is use by the Dayak tribe in Borneo.


Bought a handful from the day market in Pekan, Pahang sold by an Orang Asli from that area and I want to try and plant it in my Aquaponics set.


Few bulb planted in my gutter growbed,


and a few more in the ornamental set.


A few bulbs I planted in normal dirt, just to make sure if the aquaponics trial fail at least I still have few left to try again.


Various studies done on this plant on its medicinal properties. Traditionally used as diuretic, vermifuge, abortifacient, antifertility agent.
