The leaves of this tree from planet Punlitorea (or Tizin-A?) have no petioles, but instead grow directly from the cambium. They are very broad, very thin, very hard, and very sharp-edged. This is a young tree. As it ages, the leaves will become larger and more numerous. The roots are adapted to surviving times of flooding and so resemble mangroves.
