The kentia palm (Howeia) is one of the world's most popular indoor palms. In fact, it's sometimes called the Sentry Palm, presumably because of the entryways it guards. The kentia palm is perhaps not the most beautiful or graceful of all palm trees, but it has everything you could ask for in an indoor palm. It's shade tolerant, cold tolerant, and doesn't grow too alarmingly large. Under the right conditions, a kentia palm will eventually grow into a magnificent specimen plant, up to 10 feet tall.
