The Howea forsteriana is definitely a favourite at Potplant Studio. The Kentia Palm can grow to be quite large, making it great to fill empty spaces in a home. This plant adds beautiful colour to any space and is reasonably slow growing.

Habitat: Best in a position away from direct sun. 

In the cooler months make a habit of misting the leaves every week as the dry air may cause the tips to turn brown. 

Light: Does well in a spot with bright, indirect sunlight. Can tolerate low light.

Water: Only needs watering when the top 5cm of soil is dry, especially in winter. A lot of Kentia's are over watered in the cooler months. Don't allow water to sit at the bottom of the pot, let it run through when watering.

Soil: Re-pot once a year in the warmer months with well draining soil.

Current heigh is 65-70cm tall from the base of the 20cm pot and may vary slightly to the picture shown.
