Kentia Palm is a statuesque and graceful palm plant with dark green foliage and arching fronds, also known as Howea forsteriana or even Thatch Palm. Often grown as multiple plants in a pot to give bulk. They are best displayed on their own to show off their shape and they need a good amount of space around them. Kentia palms are the palms found in the “Palm Courts” of great hotels and during the heyday of ocean liners. On Lord Howe Island, the palm’s fronds were used as thatch for the huts of whalers who used to visit the island during the hunting season. Kentia palms are slow growing plants and rarely grow beyond their juvenile form to grow a proper trunk indoors.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
