The Howea forsteriana commonly called the kentia palm is an Australian native plant growing naturally on the Lord Howe Island, but her beauty has taken her around the world. While Kentias look similar to the popular golden cane palms, the stems of younger plants are beautiful lime green and the fonds are more drooping in stature. This lush green beauty will brighten up the dullest room and her height makes her an ideal corner accent plant. A beautiful palm can completely change the look and feel of a room to a more elegant, inviting, and stylish look. Unlike most palms, the kentia palm is suitable for lower light conditions. The kentia palm is also suitable for various soil types, is generally resistant to pests and can even be trained to grow in full sun. Better yet, this is a beginner friendly plant that is easy to care for. This versatile beauty is the perfect plant for every home and office. So order a kentia palm today to grace your space for many years to come!
