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 0.55-0.6m 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.
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.
