Cultural Notes: Kentias are very adaptable to a variety of soil conditions, which is one of the reasons why they are easy to maintain. They prefer sandy soils with good drainage so they are good palms to grow if you live in a coastal area. Kentias can grow up to 18m in their natural habitat in Lord Howe Island and will slowly head towards this in your garden.
