Pot Size: 27cm
ALSO KNOWN AS: Zamioculcas Zamiifolia, CHARACTER SUMMARY: Pretty low maintenance, the ZZ is a bit of a hipster who symbolises resiliency and long life. Its upwards leaves symbolize growth and advancement which is considered auspicious - and a great addition to your family to kick start 2021. This plant is excellent for folks who want to bring a bit of life to their office or living space but don’t have much time to devote to plant care. LIGHT PREFERENCES: Pretty versatile, the ideal light level for a ZZ is low to moderate, making this little fella pretty adaptable and an ideal plant for a bathroom or office. If you notice your plant trying to move away from the plant source by curling its leaves, yellowing and/or leaning - your plant is getting too much light. WATER PREFERENCES: Every two or three weeks - only when the soil is dry. These little guys are pretty robust in a drought due to their clever roots (rhizomes) which help them to store water under the soil. Yellow leaves will indicate overwatering and root rot. Regular watering when required will encourage a steady growth, but these guys can survive months without H20 if needed. FUN FACT: The ZZ is a great air purifying plant with studies showing that it actively removes benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene from the air around it.
