Description

If you’re looking for a chic, elegant houseplant with architectural grace, the Kentia Palm (Howea Forsteriana) is a top choice. Even if you have no experience with indoor houseplants, it’s easy to keep this low-maintenance palm in good health. Though a Kentia Palm will survive erratic watering and low-light conditions, humidity is the key to keeping this mini palm tree in perfect condition. When positioned in a well-chosen spot, Howea Forsteriana has the potential to grow into a spectacular, 3m (9ft) tall indoor palm tree! Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but will tolerate shade. Direct morning or afternoon sunlight for a few hours a day should not harm an established plant, providing it is not too harsh. Watering: Be careful not to overwater your Kentia Palm as this can lead to waterlogged roots and rot. Allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering again. Temperature: The Howea forsteriana prefers average household temperatures: between 16-24°C, but do not allow it to fall lower than 13°C. Avoid cold draughts. Humidity: Howea forsteriana prefers increased humidity levels. Place on a shallow gravel tray filled with water and mist regularly. Ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. Feed: Liquid fertiliser can be applied occasionally during the growing season. Try not to over-feed. Height & Growth Rate: The Kentia Palm is a very slow-growing plant which typically reaches an ultimate indoor height of around 2 to 3 metres. Toxicity: This palm is non-toxic and therefore safe around small children and animals.Air Purifying: Palms clean and improve air quality by filtering toxins from the surrounding environment.

How to care for your plants

  • Your plant’s pot should have holes in the bottom so it is able to drain water easily.

  • If reusing a pot that had other plants in it, it is recommended you wash the pot, killing any mould or bacteria.

  • Do not over water your plant as the roots will rot.

  • Most plants need to be kept by a good source of natural light.

  • You should fertilise your plant every two months. You can use all purpose fertiliser.

  • Any dead or fallen leaves should be removed to prevent bacteria and mould. Dead branches should also be removed.
