Howard's survival guide
A plant with many names
Howard goes by many names. Commonly referred to as the Kentia Palm, this handsome green amigo is also known as the Thatch Palm or Palm Court Palm (confusing, we know). Officially though, his name is Howea which is derived from his native land of ‘Lord Howe Island’. We think that sounds pretty neat so from now on we'll call him Lord Howard!
How to care for Howard
The Kentia Palm or Howea Forsteriana if you want to get technical, is one that much like other palms, likes his drink. So be sure to provide this tropical plant plenty of water. Weekly in spring and summer and a bit less in fall and winter. Kentia's area quite well suited for indirect light or even areas a bit further away from the window which is a nice change. They are a bit prone however to browning of the leaves which is caused by humidity levels being inadequate. A pebble tray, humidifier can help your Kentia Palm achieve higher humidity and thrive indoors!
