The Zamia plant has long folds which arch from a central crown. The fronds carry tightly packed thick leather leaflets that range from smooth-edge to spiny, giving the plant a fern-like appearance. It is an ideal plant for an indoor environment due to its air purifying qualities that will improve the air quality of your home or office.
Environment: Both indoor and outdoor
Light: Extremely bright light is best with direct sunlight being fine, especially during the plant’s growing season.
Watering: Try to keep the soil fairly moist and wait until it dries a little (to a depth of 2-5 cm) between watering. In the summer, water every 6-15 days and substantially reduce watering during winter months.
Fertilizing: Feed twice a year with a general palm food, once at the beginning of the growing season in the spring and once at the beginning of the fall.
