Regular price €54.95

Howea forsteriana, commonly known as the Kentia Palm or Thatch Palm, is a graceful and popular indoor palm tree that thrives in the Irish climate. It is highly sought after for its elegant appearance and adaptability to indoor environments.

Height/Spread: Howea forsteriana can reach an impressive height of up to 10 feet (3 meters) with a spread of 6 feet (1.8 meters) when grown indoors. Its tall, slender trunk is crowned with a cluster of arching, feathery fronds, adding a touch of tropical beauty to any space.

Position: In the Irish climate, the Kentia Palm thrives in bright, indirect light indoors. It can tolerate lower light conditions, making it a perfect choice for indoor spaces with limited sunlight. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.

Soil: Howea forsteriana prefers a well-draining potting mix that retains some moisture. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and sand provides a suitable growing medium for the palm. Ensure that the soil is not waterlogged, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot.

Flowering Season: While Howea forsteriana is primarily grown for its foliage, it occasionally produces small, inconspicuous flowers indoors. However, it is unlikely to flower regularly in indoor settings.

Uses: The Kentia Palm is a versatile plant for interior decoration in the Irish climate. Its elegant appearance and ability to adapt to low light conditions make it an excellent choice for homes, offices, and public spaces. It adds a touch of tropical ambiance to indoor environments and serves as an eye-catching focal point. The Kentia Palm is also known for its air-purifying properties, helping to improve indoor air quality by filtering out pollutants.
