How to keep this plant alive
Find the right spot
Are you looking for the easiest plant ever? Then look no further! This Zamioculcas (also known as zz-plant) is extremely easy to care for. Light place, dark place or forget to water him once (or three times). He remains zen and in the meantime keeps his green looks. He’s not a very fast grower. You will ensure as much growth as possible by putting it in a spot with sunlight. An hour of direct sunlight and indirect sunlight for the rest of the day is ideal.
How thirsty is this plant?
Not so much! It’s fine if you forget to water him every now and then. Make sure that the soil dries up between watering and that the water can leave the pot. A foot bath is the only thing the Zamioculcas really can’t stand. And oh yes, the cold. Do not lower the temperature in your home below 16°C.
Did you know…?
- This plant originally comes from countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe and Tanzania? So greetings from Zanzibar, where you’ll find this plant everywhere in the wild. No wonder he can withstand some drought and absolutely doesn’t like cold.
