Rattan or rotang are armed, climbing palms. Armed means, they have spines to defend themselves. Together with their tendrils they climb the trees and often they appear like weed.
In fact they are in Australia, they are immigrants from South East Asia and very fast growing. Somewhere (think it was in Kuranda) I read they often outcompete Australian trees so they become a pest. So buying Rattan furniture is the advice of the day.
