Howea fosteriana - Kentia Palm


Howea fosteriana - Kentia Palm (Howea fosteriana - Kentia Palm)

I moved this Kentia Palm from the space where my shade structure is going to be built. It had been in the same spot since the first day I moved in. It's in a large pot with roots which were growing into the ground for almost 6 1/2 years. It also weighs a ton and is around 9 feet / 2.6 meters tall. Almost broke my back moving it here.

Yes, it's worth it...because I'm going to sell this palm for about $225.00. : > )

Wow that would cost us about £300-400 a palm that size ..

With this great recession still plaguing us...I hope I can get the $225.00 for this Kentia Palm!

Here you can get some good deals...however, large trees with several feet of trunk are usually $150 - $200 per trunk-foot. Very expensive! : > )
