Elegant kentia palm from the Lord Howe Island. Howea belmoreana is the rarer sister of the enormously common "common kentia", Howea forsteriana, which is produced by millions units as the perfect house plant. Howea belmoreana is similar in many aspects but its leaves arch in the opposite sense and its segments point upwards. It is also a bit slower and this is enough to had it kicked out of the industrial production of ornamental plants and now it is restricted to palm collectors and plant conoisseurs. This "other" kentia, just like the common kentia, is able to withstand the conditions of the average home and it can take light short frosts in coastal Mediterranean conditions.
