About Kentia Palm
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 can fit in. Much more shade-liking than other indoor plants making it one of the most popular choices.
So, if you want some of the royal, 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.
Howea Forsteriana gained great popularity as a houseplant in Europe and the United States during the Victorian era, at a time when exotic palms and other plants were avidly collected in England and elsewhere. The Kentia became the quintessential ‘parlour palm’ beginning in the 1870s, when seed exports from Lord Howe Island first started. In part, this was because the plant thrived in interiors where low light, low humidity, poor air quality and cool temperatures made palms otherwise impossible to grow.
