Kentia’s like a compost that drains well. The roots of the Kentia are very sensitive both to disturbance and to overwatering. The palm will thrive when regularly misted and allowed to dry out between waterings.
We love Kentia palms for their elegance and lush, healthy appearance. In the right spot a Kentia can thrive for many years.
The ideal spot for a Kentia is a bright location, away from direct sunlight and heat sources such as radiators. Although reasonably slow growing, Kentia’s can end up as quite bushy plants so give them plenty of space.
