Howea forsteriana, or Kentia Palm as they are commonly known are an indoor plant ideal for the home or office, and probably the easiest to keep of all the palms.
Available in 3 sizes – approximately 95cm, 1.4m or 1.6ms tall and good healthy specimens.
Can be grown on into larger plants or the branches can cut back occasionally to keep them at the same size. Minimum temperature 50 degrees fahrenheit.
Happiest in a partially shaded spot, try to avoid direct sunlight. Only re-pot when absolutely pot bound as they don’t like being disturbed. Feed well in Spring and Summer and always keep the compost moist. Just water occasionally in Winter. Mist leaves if in a heated room.
Keep in a pot with drainage holes sitting on a saucer, or if planting in a pot with no holes place some gravel at the bottom for drainage. These plants as with most foliage plants don’t like sitting in saturated compost.
Please note that the ceramic pot is not included.
Try a tin of leaf shine spray it gives your foliage plants an extra glossy healthy look. Available from Garden Market Place. Just add to your order and save on postage.
