Kentia Palm (100cm)


About me 

AKA: Howea Forsteriana, Sentry Palm

My tall stems and long, glossy, green leaves fan out to make quite the impression. I can grow up to 3m (10ft) tall so can be the centrepiece in a hallway or living room. And also

I’m quite easy to look after, including living in the shade. 

Care instructions 


  • I can deal with a wide range of lighting conditions, including moderate shade. But try to keep me out of direct sunlight as it can scorch my leaves


  • From spring-autumn let the top 2-3cm of my soil dry out before watering me, in winter water me sparingly
  • I like being misted regularly


  • Feed me once in spring and once in summer


Non toxic
