One of the most popular houseplants of all time is the Kentia Palm. Originating on a small island just off Australia’s East Coast, it was brought back to the UK and popularised by Queen Victoria in the 1880’s. This palm is easy to care for and acts as a fabulous showstopper in any room it resides. Much more shade-liking than other indoor plants making it one of the most popular choices.

So, if you want some of the royal opulence and exotic indulgence that was loved by one of the most powerful women in world history – look no further. The Kentia Palm makes any space look like a tropical paradise and has bags of character.
