Kentias and Conservatories.

In the early Victorian era Kentia Palms were the most sought after plant to have growing in a home garden conservatory. Usually the Kentia was a “single” potted one so that it would display elegance when it canopied out. The age of these Kentias ranged from about five years to eight years old when installed.
Today tall single Kentias can be seen in lots of conservatories. These age from about twelve to fifteen years old before installation, and can be very expensive to purchase.
Here are some pictures of Kentias in home and business conservatories. I really like the one of the two Kentias in the Garden Conservatory Skywalk at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee!
