Kentia palm (small)
This variant is currently sold out.
Kentia Palms (howea forsteriana) are sophisticated and totally lush. We're calling this one a small, but its not far off a metre tall. They are more tolerant of low light than most other palms. Once they are established, kentia palms can thrive for decades.
Light: Will do best in a bright room with indirect light. Tolerant of some shade too. Some direct morning or afternoon sunlight for a few hours a day should not harm a large plant, providing it is not too harsh.
Water: Let the top 1-2 inches of soil dry out (let it get and light and crumbly) before watering again. You can let it dry even more in winter time.
Humidity: They do like humidity, mist it frequently if you can. Great for bathrooms and kitchens where there is often higher humidity levels.
Height and growth rate: They are slow growing, and can reach up to 3 metres tall.
Feed: A weak liquid feed every twe weeks or so during spring and summer.
Toxicity: Non-toxic, so totally safe for pets and kids.
*Our plants and pots are sold separately. Your plant will arrive in its plastic nursery pot, unless you have also ordered a decorative pot.
