This gorgeous plant gives an instant touch of the exotic. They are a welcome splash of green and can provide some real height and instant impact.
We now have the Kentia in two sizes:
Medium 0.45-0.6m tall (from bottom of the pot) x 14cm diameter pot.
Large 0.70-0.90m tall (from bottom of the pot) x 19cm diameter pot.
Extra Large 1-1.2m (from bottom of the pot) x 21cm diameter pot.
The picture shows the XL sized plant, the smaller sizes will inevitably not look as developed as this upon arrival but will grow to do so.
Kentia Palm (Howea Forsteriana)
Kentia Palms should be in a well drained planter to prevent root rot. They need a thorough water but do allow them to dry out in between watering and they appreciate a misting once in a while.. They like indirect light and maintain their health in low light conditions. They are slow growers and don't like to be repotted unless absolutely necessary - ie when theyr have a big root ball! They prefer temperatures to be between 16-24 degrees.
They are non toxic for cats and dogs.
