Botanically called howea forsteriana and commonly known as kentia palm and thatch palm the Kenya palm is a species of flowering plant in the palm tree family arecaeca. Native to Lord Howe Island in Australia the Kenya palm is widely grown on Norfolk Island. The natural Kenya palm is a slow growing plant that will eventually grow to around 10 metres tall. The species is considered vulnerable by the World Conservation Union.
Although a very popular indoor plant that doesn’t need much light, the natural Kenya palm if grown outside prefers a more tropical region (which is not the United Kingdom!). Although it will grow in cooler temperatures (minimum of around -5 degrees Celcius and preferably not under 10 degrees Celcius) it shouldn't be subject to this temperature for more than a few hours - maybe why artificial Kenya palms are becoming a very popular alternative!
