The Kentia Palm is a perfect indoor palm. Elegant, air-purifying and resilient, it can tolerate some neglect, cooler temperatures and dry air conditions making it a low maintenance and trouble-free palm to provide lush, leafy, tropical foliage and an exotic element to any home or office interior.
Approx 1.2 metres tall.
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.
Water: Allow the top of the soil to dry out before watering. Do not over water.
Temperature: Average household temperatures 16-24°C, but no lower than 13°C. Avoid draughts.
Humidity: Prefers increased humidity levels. Place on a shallow gravel tray filled with water and mist regularly. Put it outside in warm summer rain or leave in a gentle shower for a few minutes for a special treat.
Feed: Liquid fertiliser can be applied occasionally during the growing season. Do not over-feed.
Care Tips: Dust (or shower) from time to time and remove any dead stems, cutting close to the trunk.
Air Purifying: Palms clean and improve air quality by filtering formaldehyde, benzene and carbon monoxide toxins from the surrounding environment.
Height and Growth Rate: Ultimate indoor height 2-3m. Very slow growing.
