We love this wonderful palm-like houseplant, it’s spectacular and brings a real rainforest feel! With lush green branches like a cross between a palm and a fern with its bushy growth springing up from the base.
Originating in central Africa, Zamioculcas, or the ZZ plant is very well adapted to coping with drought and it will tolerate neglect - so if you tend to forget to water plants then this one will forgive you - at least for a while!
In Tanzania it’s known for its medicinal qualities, being used to treat a multitude of maladies! We wouldn’t be able to recommend using it in a medical way but we do know the therapeutic value of houseplants - they are known to relieve stress and anxiety and elevate mood. What could be better on a rainy day than to be inside surrounded by your houseplants - you could even try forest bathing for a really spiritual experience.
Happy Houseplants is the place to buy houseplants - whether it’s large indoor plants (UK), mini houseplants or succulents for sale. We have the plants and the knowledge and we really enjoy sharing our passion for houseplants with you, our customers.
As a special touch, if you’re buying a plant as a houseplant gift, we’ll add in a free, handwritten card - just leave your message at checkout and we’ll do the rest!
The ZZ plant care level
This one is really easy to care for, perfect for beginners.
Where should I put the ZZ plant?
The Zamioculcas Zamiifolia plant is really unfussy - it won’t like direct light but it will cope with darker corners, although it prefers bright light.
How should I water it?
Water when the top few inches of soil are dry, soak through and leave to drain.
What about feeding?
You need to give the Fern Arum a feed once a month in spring and summer - try our vegan, organic plant food!
Is it suitable if I have pets?
No, this plant can be toxic to cats and dogs.
What size is it?
W9 x H15cm.
We recommend one of our seagrass planters for a truly stylish look! Buy with one of our seagrass planters and we will ensure your plant and basket match beautifully and deliver together. & Don't forget your plant food.
