The Kentia Palm is one of the most beautiful,popular and suitable palms for growing indoors. Almost unsurpassed for its tolerance of shady conditions, dry air and general neglect
Howea forsteriana has graced hallways, hotel lobbies and 'Palm Court' tea rooms since Victorian times. Where climate allows it makes a perfect street tree outside where adult plants glory in full sun - generally too harsh for juvenile plants indoors.
Although often seen as multi-stemmed potted specimens Kentia Palms are solitary trunked - but it is hard to resist the lush effect of three or more small plants together!

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.
