Approximately 0.5 to 1 liter of water once a week in summer, 0.5 liter every 10 days to 2 weeks in winter.

Care Guide

For watering of the Palmier Kentia (Howea forsteriana), use water at room temperature and whose chlorine has evaporated. Keep the soil slightly moist but let the top soil (5 - 6cm) dry between waterings. Remove the decorative moss beforehand to avoid wetting it. Water in 2 times, spaced about 10 minutes apart, so that the soil absorbs the water well. Spray the foliage of your plant regularly to increase the humidity level. Clean the foliage once a month with a soft cloth and diluted black soap. Rotate the pot a quarter circle at this time to promote smooth growth. Apply suitable fertilizer once a month from March to September.

Questions about the Kentia Palm

How tall can a Kentia Palm grow?

The Kentia Palm, also known as Howea forsteriana, can reach a height of 18 meters in the wild. Indoors, it will generally not exceed 2.50 meters. Still, it's a real indoor tree. With its moderate growth, this palm is perfect for creating a tropical canopy atmosphere in spacious rooms.

Does Kentia Palm purify the air?

Yes, Kentia Palms are powerful indoor air purifiers, removing toxins from your home and converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.

Does the Kentia Palm need a lot of sun?

The Kentia Palm is a model of lighting flexibility. Ideally, it prefers to bathe in bright indirect light, but its nature allows it to adapt to shady spaces. This makes it perfect for various areas of your home or office, whether a quiet corner or a space bathed in subdued natural light.

Is the Kentia Palm easy to maintain?

Absolutely, but it's essential to understand and tame it.

The Kentia Palm is a less forgiving plant than others, requiring a bit of attention, so it's important to get to know its needs. Be careful not to over-water or neglect it, as this could lead to its leaves drying out. Fortunately, even if you make a few mistakes, don't worry: after a period of stabilization, and a new period of growth and the appearance of new palms, your Kentia Palm will regain its splendor. It's a resilient plant that, with a little care and attention, will continue to thrive in your space.

Is Kentia Palm toxic or poisonous to humans or pets?

This houseplant is non-toxic to humans and pets. You can therefore place it in your home without fear for your children, dogs or cats.

Is the Kentia Palm prone to disease and parasites?

The Kentia Palm, with its exotic allure and robustness, is generally resistant to disease and pests.

However, like all plants, it is not immune to certain threats. Particular attention needs to be paid to humidity and watering, as excess humidity can encourage the development of fungal diseases, and overly dry air can attract pests such as mealybugs and red spiders. Regular maintenance, including leaf cleaning and careful monitoring, will help preserve the health and beauty of your Kentia Palm, keeping it away from unwanted visitors. In the event of invasion, rapid intervention with the right treatment is key. Remove pests with Super Neem Oil solution and a soft cloth, and spray the foliage more regularly to increase atmospheric humidity.

In addition, this palm tree can also be affected by fungi, particularly if over-watering leads to root rot and dry stems and leaves. To treat this problem, it's essential to reduce humidity around the plant, ensure good air circulation, remove any stagnant water at the bottom of the pot and remove affected parts. A root check-up is also advisable. The use of a plant repair treatment may also be necessary. It's always best to prevent these problems by maintaining a regular watering regime.

Does Howea forsteriana produce flowers and fruit?

Although less well known for its floral qualities, Howea forsteriana, more commonly known as Kentia Palm, has the potential to produce flowers and fruit in its natural habitat. However, indoors, where it is often appreciated for its lush, airy foliage, flowering and fruiting are rare events. If you're lucky enough to witness this event, expect discreet flowers followed by small fruits. But don't forget, the real spectacle of the Kentia Palm lies in its elegant leaves and majestic habit.

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

All large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. Wait a couple of days before watering, the moisture meter should not be constantly bright blue.

After 9 months it will be time to replace the moister meter stick.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter. 

Will the plant I receive be exactly like the one in the photo on your site?

Of course, no two plants look the same. Although we do our best to offer you a plant that looks as much as possible as the photos, there will always be variations, which is what makes each plant unique!
