Light & Location
Kentia Palms can survive in almost all light conditions but bright, indirect light with little to no direct sunlight is best. Despite the idea of Kentia Palms thriving in dark locations, avoid placing it in a spot completely devoid of natural light. We all need a little bit of sunshine in our lives. Use one of our soil & light testers to understand how bright your space is.
Allow the top third of the soil to dry out in between waters. It’s recommended not to use the bottom-up method of submersion with the Kentia, due to the risk of root rot. If you’re worried about over-watering you can use one of our soil moisture meters. If you do, make sure you water when levels are just below moist. Grab yourself a watering can to keep your Kentia Palm happy and healthy.
Provide a humid environment, away from radiators. Treat your Kentia Palm to a light shower with a water mister a few times a week and it will definitely thank you for it. Also, consider dusting your leaves every other month to maximise light absorption and keep it in optimum health.
