Light: Kentias tolerate shade better than some, but you’ll get a healthier, greener plant by giving your palm bright, indirect light year-round. Take care not to put it in direct sunlight, which may cause brown scorch marks on its leaves.
Water: Keep soil lightly moist spring through fall. In winter, allow the top half of the soil to dry out before watering again. Too much water will cause leaves to turn yellow then brown. To keep Kentia palm looking its best, brown fronds can be cut off.
Humidity: Kentia palm likes high humidity (around 50-60% relative humidity). If the relative humidity drops below 40%, use a cool-mist room humidifier. Brown leaf tips are a symptom of dry air, although this is common even on healthy palms.
Temperature: Average room temperatures 65-80°F/18-27°C. Kentia palm can tolerate a minimum of 55°F/13°C.
Soil: Peat moss-based potting mix with added horticultural sand for quick drainage.
Fertilizer: Feed monthly in spring and summer. Organic palm fertilizer contains the micronutrients this palm needs. Don’t feed in fall and winter when growth has slowed.
