Kentia Palm (Howea Forsteriana) is a vigorous and versatile plant that can style well both indoor and outdoor. Native to the South Pacific, Kentia Palm is a slow-growing, hardy palm that produces graceful, dark green foliage. It gives out a sense of freshness and originality - a superbly elegant plant. 

Kentia palms can grow to a height of about  9 meters tall when grown outdoors and produce offsets around the trunks. These palms grow naturally in warm climates near streams and freshwater sources, so they need more moisture both in soil and in the environment than other palm species. When grown indoors, regular misting helps to prevent browning on the tips of the foliage.
