ينمو هذا النوع من النباتات في الهند وجنوب شرق آسيا. وتأتي هذه العيّنة من مومباي، غرب الهند. تحمل كل بذرة من بذورها خصلةً من الخيوط الحريرية (تسمى غيبوبة)، ويمكن استخدامها ككابوك لحشو الوسائد. كما يمكن استخلاص الألياف من لحاء جذوعها. علاوةً على ذلك، تُعرف النبتة باسم "الصقلاب العملاق" ولها استخدامات طبية عديدة لكنّها سامة أيضاً.
