Elegant and stately, theHowea forsterianais one of the first plants cultured for use inside buildings (think hotel lobbies in classic Bogart films), and it stands the test of time. It’s also one palm that can tolerate low-light conditions. It’s got a nice upright nature, but can spread its fronds over time. With no disrespect for the less-expensive Areca Palm, don’t confuse the two – theKentiahas a much lower light requirement, will last longer, and it is much more majestic in character. If this plant is added to your favorite room, you will not be disappointed.
