Why buy Kohala Nursery plants?

Kohala Nursery, Inc premium quality Kentia palm

Premium Quality Kohala Nursery Hawaiian Kentia Palm

Hawaiian palms are well known for their durability, beauty and color.  Hawaii’s ideal growing conditions combined with our many years of experience, allow us to produce  truly premium quality rhapis, kentia and caryota palms with deep vibrant color and strong  root and shoot systems. Our Professional Grade Plants are grown in a Hawaiian volcanic cinder and peat potting mix which results in a superior root system with excellent aeration.

Benefits of Hawaiian Potting Mix

  • Water retention – peat & cinder
  • Cation exchange Cinder – low,  Peat – higher
  • Great air exchange due to porosity
  • Low shrinkage due to cinder not breaking down use of long lasting peat
  • Sterile media as cinder is heat treated
  • Good capillary action
  • Less breakdown and decomposition of organic material lends for a more stable media which is also less prone to soil insects
