Georg Eberhard Rumphius (1627-1702), the great Dutch naturalist in the service of the Dutch East Indies Trading Company (VOC) in the Moluccan Isles of Indonesia doesn't use the name 'Sida' for this plant. Always finely attuned to local languages, he latinised the native name to 'Silagurium'. But in his extended description he remarks that he had first called it 'Bathyriza' (from the Greek for 'deeply rooted'). Indeed, I've tried to uproot this plant to look at its root, and had a hard time. Among the many characteristics that Rumphius notes is the fact that you can more or less tell time by Sida. The pretty orange flowers open only after about 9 AM and close again in early afternoon.
