Zamia AKA Zamioculcas zamiifolia, Zanzibar gem, ZZ plant, Zuzu plant, aroid palm, eternity plant, emerald palm, cardboard palm The ZZ is a semi-succulent and therefore accustomed to long periods of dry conditions interspersed with bursts of generous rain. As such, the ZZ has evolved an efficient rhizomous root system that holds on to as much water as it can absorb, as well as fleshy, moisture rich leaves. This is a plant that thrives on neglect and is a great choice for frequent travelers, those who occasionally forget to water, or for the office. Light: Indirect bright light is ideal for a ZZ, but they are also content in low light situations and in direct light, making it a versatile and near fool proof indoor plant. Water: Always be sure to assess your plant’s watering needs upon receiving it. Before giving your ZZ a drink, it is best to check the moisture level deep in the soil first to ensure it isn’t moist right beneath the surface. Also, consider aerating the soil of your plant before the initial watering. Aerating can help the soil breathe and allow moisture to be released. As ZZ’s prefer a dry environment, it is very important to see how damp the soil is at the root zone before watering.
