Kentia palm (large)
This variant is currently sold out.
Kentia palms (howea forsteriana) are sophisticated and totally lush. Pictured is the large and medium size in our Niall and Ruth pots. They originate from Australia, but 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 2 inches of the soil to dry out (nice and crumbly) before watering.
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 monthly during spring and summer.
Toxicity: Non-toxic, so totally safe for pets and kids.
