Kentia Palm + Pot
This variant is currently sold out
If you love the tropical look of a palm tree but don’t live in a tropical region, try growing Kentia palm (Howea forsteriana). What is a Kentia palm? Kentia palm plants are notorious for being able to withstand conditions that many houseplants can’t tolerate. Plus, an indoor Kentia palm can attain a formidable height that makes it an outstanding focal point in interior landscapes.
They adapt to a wide range of soil, from clay to loam and acidic to alkaline. Plant container grown Kentia in well-draining potting mix, preferably on the sandy side. Once established, Kentia palm plants are fairly drought tolerant, although they do not like to be overly dry, or for that matter overly wet. Water only when the top inch or so (2.5 cm.) of soil starts to dry out. Mist indoor Kentia palm occasionally to provide some humidity and to remove any dust build-up. The plants are quite forgiving and tolerant of low light conditions, but do prefer an area that receives indirect light indoors. You can also choose to keep your plant outdoors during the warmer months in a somewhat shaded location. While the Kentia can tolerate temperatures down to -4 C and up to 38 C, it is best to bring the plant back indoors prior to winter and offer protection from excessive heat during the summer – no direct sunlight.
