howea forsteriana



This palm originates from the east coast of Australia, from the Lord Howe Islands. This also explains its name: Howea. The name forsteriana is derived from the Australian politician W. Forster. Australia still exports many seeds of this palm, for example, to be produced as indoor plants in Holland.



This Kentia palm has fan-shaped dark green leaves that droop gracefully. Both indirect sunlight and partial shade are suitable for this easy plant.

If the air humidity is too low, brownish leaf tips may develop. A weekly spray of the leaves can prevent this, while also washing away the dust.


This easy-care Kentia palm is often used as an office plant and also has an air-purifying effect.



To prevent the leaves from being exposed to too much light always on the same side, which makes them hang down, it is a good idea to rotate the plant regularly. In this way, it looks beautiful and with a more erect shape.

Watering will have to be very precise with this beautiful foliage plant: too much water can cause root rot, while too much drought leads to yellow leaves or brownish leaf tips. Therefore, regularly check the humidity of the substrate. When the pot is full of roots, it's time to move the plant into a pot about 20% larger. Fill the pot with substrate and water well.

In spring and summer, they can be fertilized monthly.
