The origins of the Kentia Palm are traceable to Australia, or to be more focused: Lord Howe Island. Hence its Latin name; Howea Forsteriana. The palm was discovered here in 1800 and was one of the first palms to be cultivated specifically as a houseplant. It is a strong and elegant plant and will thrive both in a sunny or shady spots.

The Kentia doesn't mind wet feet, so make sure it is sufficiently watered. The Kentia may ask for some attention, but it also gives a lot: it is one of nature’s true air purifiers. An ideal presence for your living space!
