Our Zamioculcas zamiifolia, also known as Zanzibar gem or ZZ Plant, is a very easy houseplant to care for.
An unusual-looking plant that resembles Zamia (a plant related to cycads), the Zamioculcas is a relatively new plant to cultivation – large scale commercial production only began in 1996. In some parts of East Africa, the plant is said to be used medicinally to reduce inflammation and as a treatment for earache, but details are sketchy. Surprisingly, this plant is most closely related to species such as Aglaonema and Peace Lilies.
All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
