Discover the elegant Kentia Palm, a tropical treasure for your home. Known scientifically as Howea Forsteriana, this slow-growing palm adds natural beauty to any space, perfect for bringing the tropics indoors.

Kentia Palms thrive indoors, reaching up to 3 meters in height. They prefer medium to bright indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight to prevent leaf scorch. Their slender trunks and glossy, dark green fronds create a captivating, tropical look.

Ideal Growing Conditions

Keep your Kentia Palm healthy with consistent moisture β€” soil should be moist but not waterlogged. To mimic their natural humid environment, mist the leaves regularly or use a pebble tray.

Watering and Humidity Needs

Nourish your Kentia Palm with slow-release indoor plant food during the growing seasons. They are not heavy feeders, so avoid over-fertilization. Repot only when necessary, as they prefer undisturbed roots. Use well-draining soil in pots with drainage holes.

Fertilizing and Potting

Patience is key with slow-growing Kentia Palms. Propagation is complex and best left to professionals. Regularly inspect for pests like mealybugs and spider mites. Proper care includes balanced watering, appropriate light, and periodic fertilization for lush growth.
