Kentia PalmFrom £36
My tall stems and long, glossy, green leaves fan out to make quite the impression; I'm also one of the most versatile plants around.

The table gives a guide to the size of this plant and how it will fit into your space. Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
Keep me in a bright room but out of direct sunlight; can also tolerate light shade.
Check my soil once a week and water whenever the top soil is dry.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I love being regularly misted, which will keep my foliage fresh and airy.
Give my leaves an occasional wipe to remove dust, and remove brown fronds at the base.
