Kentia palm (Howea forsteriana) is a popular choice among interior decorators because it is well suited for container growing. This elegant palm does very well indoors since it is extremely durable and slow growing. In indoor it can grow anywhere between 5 to 12 feet. Kentias have upright slender trunks and long arching, feathered, dark green leaves (also known as fronds).
Kentia palm requires the right watering amount and lighting condition to survive.
Ideal place for Kentia is near window with indirect sunlight.
Water only when the top inch or so (2.5 cm.) of the soil starts to dry out. Mist indoor Kentia palm occasionally to provide some humidity and to remove any dust build-up.
