How to Care
Place your pot in an area where it will receive decent but indirect amounts of sunlight especially in the early mornings and late afternoons. Direct sunlight, especially for young Kentia's could lead to sunburn.
Do not overwater the plant. When indoors, only water it when the uppermost soil layer is dry. Also ensure that the soil has decent drainage .You can mist your plant to simulate humidity and to prevent pesky spider mites from infesting your Kentia. Misting will also take care of dust build up.
Howea forsteriana prefers well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Mulch around the plants or encourage the natural mulch of fallen fronds to collect.
To ensure that your Kentia is getting all the nutrients and minerals that it needs to grow, you can apply a slow release fertilizer once or twice a year, in the summer and spring.
Avoid re-potting the plant as the Kentia is generally anti-social and hates being disturbed. The Kentia is again, a slow-growing palm with fragile roots so if you must re-pot, be very careful in handling its root ball.
Howea forsteriana can be propagated only by sowing fresh seeds and keeping it to germinate at atemperature of 27 °C (80°F). Can be used a heated propagating case. It seems that germination rate is 50% or less. Seedling usually grow very slow. It may take about six years to produce a typical Howea forsteriana palm.
• Cut off dead or damaged leaves and keep the dead leaves around the base of the trunk trimmed back for a neater appearance. Remove leaves sparingly as new leaves are slow to emerge.
You should cut these leaves quite close to the trunk leaving only about a half inch of the original leaf stem.
• In addition to trimming and pruning, you’ll need to give your plant a little cleaning from time-to-time. You should occasionally wipe the plant down with a damp sponge or soft, clean cloth soaked in purified water. Wipe the leaves carefully and examine for any signs of pests or disease.
