Our Kentia Palm comes in a 30cm Nursery Pot.
If you're looking to add a tropical charm to your home but don't live in a tropical climate, then the Kentia Palm is just for you! These palms are well known for their hardiness and ability to withstand a variety of indoor living conditions with ease.
This Palm variety is also well-loved for its defined large palm fronds that truly stand out in their difference to the more readily available Parlor Palm. They are also prized for their ability to make fabulous container specimens and will grow huge indoors, however, this won't happen overnight as they are slow growers. Perfect for instant impact but not domineering.
The Kentia Palm houseplant is also very forgiving and will tolerate lower lighting conditions compared to the Parlor Palm, however, this will affect its growth rate substantially, and will prefer a relatively indirect bright light position indoors.
Pair this gorgeous statement piece with a palm leaf basket for a sleek look and place it at floor level or raise it up on a large counter or pedestal to add a little extra height.
Please note: These Palms are not known to be toxic to pets or humans.
