Get to Know the Kentia Palm

Howea fosteriana is an Australian native palm that will grow almost anywhere indoors.

In subtropical outdoor environments, Kentia Palms can grow to four metres. Luckily, they are a little more subdued as an indoor plant and will colour any corner with their rich dark fronds.

Position
They like dark corners and well-drained soil. They’ll grow slowly in a pot or tub for a long time.

Watering
Water indoor Kentia Palms only when dry. Outdoors, once a week.

Care
Move your Kentia Palm outdoors every now and again. They tolerate neglect for a time but still need your love and attention. Replace the soil in the pot every few years.
