Kentia Palm (2m)

£125.00

This hardy plant is also known as the Thatch Palm, as it was used on Lord Howe Island off of Australia as the thatching for roofs. It was a favorite among the Victorians as a status indicator and it’s still a best seller now.

It needs some sunlight and watering but not too much, a light misting and a bright room will help it to thrive. It’ll also grow very slowly, but this is just an indicator of longevity, it’ll be with you for the long run.
