The hip n trendy Zamioculcas is the plant that is on everyone’s wish list. Stylish and incredibly easy to look after, there's no wonder that it's become a social media superstar!
This easy-going houseplant is one of the most forgiving that you can grow. It's OK if you forget to water it, tolerates low light, rarely needs feeding and shrugs off pests and disease - what's not to love?!!
Zamioculcas zamiifolia is a member of the Arum (Araceae) family and is more widely known as the (much more pronounceable) ZZ plant. It’s an evergreen houseplant with thick, succulent stems fringed with glossy, feathered leaves - a real sight to behold!
Perfect for a sunny windowsill out of direct sunlight, the ZZ plant is so easy to grow that it's virtually indestructible, with a cast-iron constitution that makes it ideal for almost any position in the home. It'll put up with a degree of neglect almost without adverse effects - perfect if you occasionally forget to water your plants!
Supplied as a 70cm tall (incluging nursery pot) specimen plant.
Best in bright, indirect sunlight, though it will tolerate low light. Early morning sun is suitable, but keep it out of hot, direct sunlight which can scorch its leaves.
Water thoroughly then allow the soil to dry out between watering. Soggy soil will cause the rhizomes to rot.
Grow in a free draining compost - cactus potting mix works well. Feed 4 times a year with a half strength liquid fertilizer.
