ZZ Plant Care
(Zanzibar Gem / Zamioculcas Zamiifolia)
ZZ Plant or Zamioculcas Zamiifolia is an attractive and low maintenance tropical indoor plant. Zee Zee is perfect for beginners as it can tolerate low light and has low water requirements. These beauties grow from bright lime in their youth to shiny, oval-shaped emerald green in their maturity. Although it comes from the Philodendron family of skin-irritating plants, this is the safest one.
Although regular garden soil is sufficient, for better drainage, you can mix in perlite or sand.
Your plant does not require fertilizers to thrive. If required, use an indoor plant fertilizer diluted to half-strength one or two times during its active growing season (summer)
ZZ can cause severe stomach aches if consumed. Hence, it is not suitable for spaces with pets and children.
