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.

I'm one of the most versatile plants there is, including being able to cope with shade, pet and child friendly and I'm also great at purifying the air! 

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
