  • Light watering - Check about once a week and water if the top two inches of soil feel dry.
  • Humidity - It appreciates moist air to keep fronds fresh. That’s easily done by misting a couple of times a week.
  • Medium light - happiest in any room that gets a lot of light. Harsh sun is a bit much for it, so ideally not right next to a window.
  • A monthly dose of fertiliser in spring and summer will encourage healthy new growth.

The Kentia palm originated on Lord Howe Island, a tiny piece of land off the east coast of Australia. The island gives the palm its botanical name, Howea forsteriana. It’s a slow grower that can take decades to reach its maximum height of 10 metres. It has simple needs. It likes lots of bright light, but not harsh direct sun. Regular misting will keep its leaves fresh and green. It will also appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer. It’s a royal favourite. It deserves respect. Did you know? Kentia palms were used for decoration on The Titanic. In first-class, naturally.
