Howea Forsteriana also known as Kentia Palm is native to Lord Howe Island (Australia) in the South Pacific. They can grow up to 12 m in height outdoors and up to 3.6m indoors but they are slow growers. The Kentia palm will withstand quite dark and dry corners of your house, and will tolerate a degree of neglect. However they grow best with good light and regular care.
- Plant will be happy with lots of light but no direct sunlight. It also grows well and maintains it's health in low light conditions.
- Use a pot with drainage and water when the top 3-5cm of the soil is dry. Water less in winter. Be careful to not overwater as it will lead to the root rot. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
