INDOOR PLANT - Kentia Palm
Such a legend of a palm as is so very versatile, hardy, cold tolerant, compact and pretty damn gorgeous to boot!
Native to the islands of the South Pacific a Kentia Palm can grow up to 3 meters tall in the right conditions (unlikely in your home). These specimens are actually 2 palms planted together to give extra fullness - perfect for that slightly shadier corner or your home or office.
In order for this plant, and any plants, to thrive it is best to mimic the environment that would have in nature - in this case a warm, humid sunny spot. However the Kentia Palm is cold and shade tolerant so you can basically pick any spot around your home - from the bathroom to hallway to lounge room. If you are finding that your Kentia Palm is not as thick and full with foliage as you would like maybe it's not getting adequate light - try a holiday in a brighter spot!
Your Kentia Palm will prefer to be well-hydrated, but not soggy. Water your Kentia Palm weekly in the spring and summer, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. During the colder months, you can reduce watering as it will take it longer to dry out, we would suggest reducing to every 2 - 3 weeks.
WE RECOMMEND PLANTING IN...
These Kenita Palm's will require an increase in pot size of about 5-10cm to allow it more room to grow. A 37.5cm Mr Kitly pot would be a great choice to meet the 30cm size and a 30cm Mr Kitly will be ideal for the 25cm palm.
