Howea forsteriana, Howea, Kentia palm
Kentia palms are among the most beautiful palms that are grown in the Mediterranean. They have gentle and graceful leaves and for many people they remind of the coconut palm trees in the tropics.
Kentia palms do not like strong direct sunlight in Bulgarian conditions. They can be moved outside only when the temperatures are above zero, and at least partial shade must be provided.
For home use Kentia is the perfect plant. It grows slowly, tolerates the weaker Indoor light and can live for many years without causing problems.
