    Detailed Care Guide

    Light:
    The plant thrives in medium indirect light. Direct Light can burn its leaves.
    Water:
    Water the plant once a week. It likes its soil moist at all times but not soggy. Hold back on watering in colder months as the palm’s growth slows down during these months.
    Pet-friendly:
    The plant is pet-friendly.
    Humidity:
    Normal room humidity usually works best for kentis palm’s. The plant will suffer in high humid environments. If your home is too dry then mist the leaves daily.
    Temperature:
    Kentia palms can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. However they will not show good growth in temperatures below 25℉.
    Fertilizer:
    Feed the plant monthly during the growing season. Use a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer diluted to half strength. Do not fertilize during winters.
    Repotting:
    The palm doesnt appreciate its roots being disturbed every now and then. Limit repotting to every few years. Repot only when it's absolutely necessary i.e. when the palm roots start growing out of the drainage holes or become visible at the top of the soil. Use a regular houseplant potting mix.

    Common problems

    Yellow Leaves:
    Too much water will make the leaves turn yellow, starting with older fronds. Always check the soil before watering. Water only when the top few inches of the soil are dry and make sure that the water is drained out completely.
    Brown Tips:
    The leaf tips are likely to turn brown if the plant is receiving direct cold or hot air. Lack of humidity will also cause the plant tips to turn brown.
