Howea forsteriana - single trunk
Kentia Palm, Sentry Palm, Thatch Palm
Whilst more commonly available in a multi-plant clump, the ever-popular Howea forsteriana can also be grown as a single specimen plant - usually resulting in a thicker trunk. Whatever form you choose them in, these plants are renowned for being an easy-going indoor plant that tolerates a range of light levels and needs less humidity than many other tropical palms. A great way to add instant drama to a room, they remain fairly slim even at taller heights which is a bonus in limited space.

Palm trees are one of the most popular choices for indoor plants to grow. They provide the majestic beauty of a tropical garden and the ease of care. The less mature palms can be used as a desk plant for a small office and even in bathrooms of some homes.
An inevitable problem encountered by growing palms indoors is the amount of dust that builds up on the leaves over time.
The soil in the pots should be kept moist and never be allowed to dry out. During the summer months you will be watering as much as twice per week to maintain moisture levels, whereas in winter you should water sparingly.
