Kentia Palm plant's seemingly endless popularity is owed to its interior-friendly size, which can be an amazing companion to those who do not want its tall 4ft sibling, Areca Palm. The fact that it's not too picky about where it grows and requires only a little regular care surely doesn't hurt the palm's enduring legacy, either. It is a very low maintenance plant and is generally seen decorating a lot of corner spaces in offices and homes as a décor plant since it can survive partial to full shade.

How to care for Kentia Palm Plant?
Light & Temperature Tips for Kentia Palm plant:
- The evergreen palm grows in partial shade or even full shade, which makes it a fixture in malls and office buildings. In fact, bright, direct light may cause the leaves to dry out.
- At home, protect the plant from direct sunlight, opting for filtered sun or shade instead.
- The palm isn't a big fan of dry air, so if you use a humidifier in your space, that's even better.
Water Tips for Kentia Palm Plant:
- As it grows in its natural habitat, this palm likes moist environments.
- But when growing indoors, you're more likely to over-water your palm than under-water it.
- Water the soil with fluoride-free water so that it's uniformly moist, but be sure to let the soil dry out between watering.
