Kentia Palm

(Howea Forsteriana, Thatch Palm, Paradise Palm Plant)
Kentia Palms thrive in bright, indirect light to dappled sun. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight may burn and scorch their leaves.
Your Kentia Palm enjoys weekly waterings. Allow her soil to dry out between waterings, especially during the winter - when you might only need to water your plant fortnightly.
Kentia Palms do not have particular humidity needs.
Your Kentia Palm does not have any particular temperature requirements, but will suffer if subjected to temperatures below 10ºC.
Feed with general houseplant fertiliser monthly during the growing season (spring to summer).
Kentia Palm is non-toxic and suitable for homes with small children and pets.
Additional Care Information:
Susceptible to mealybugs and spider mites - make sure you keep an eye on your plant to tackle pests quickly if they appear.
  • Yellowing tips that are turning brown with leaning fronds: indicates your Palm has been underwatered
  • Browning Leaves: suggest your plant has not been getting enough light or has been over-fertilised.
