Help them all grow big and strong by giving them a feed with liquid fertiliser once a month in spring and summer.
Nicolau and Big Ken like to be watered whenever the top two inches of soil are dry. Susie can go weeks without water.
Big Ken and Nicolau both like somewhere bright, but out of direct sun. Susie will manage in any level of light.
These three plants will suit different parts of your home. Big Ken and Nicolau will be great for bright rooms and Susie can live in very low light.

About this set
Many small plants will eventually become big plants, but it can take a while. This set gives you instant impact, no waiting. Use them to create a focal point in large rooms, or to give drama to smaller rooms. One of the best things about large plants is that because they’re mature they’re tough, so they can easily cope with less than perfect conditions.
This set without pots includes:
Big Ken - This Kentia palm has never been off our bestseller list, because he’s a plant everybody loves. Big, tall, tropical – he gives any room a bit of a party feel. He likes a bright spot and regular misting, to keep his leaves fresh.
Nicolau - Sometimes known as the wild banana, Nicolau won’t grow bananas in your home but he’ll bring a lush taste of the tropics with his huge, glossy leaves. He’s a guy who adores sun, so put him in the brightest spot available.
Susie - Her long, slender leaves earned her the common name snake plant. She has a really stylish sculptural shape that works in any interior. And she really will live anywhere. She hardly ever needs watering and she’ll work with whatever light you have, from shade to sunshine.
The set with pots also includes:
Clay pot - Clean lines and hard-wearing materials make this an indoor plant pot built to last.
Straight edge pot - These stylish and inexpensive indoor plant pots are made using 70% recycled materials.
Dipped pot - Warm colours and contrasting textures make these hand-finished pots real eye-catchers.
