The ZZ (Zamioculcas zamiifolia), or Zanzibar Gem, is a semi-succulent native to the semi-arid regions of Eastern Africa. It is accustomed to long periods of dry conditions interspersed with bursts of generous rain. As such, the ZZ has evolved an efficient rhizomous root system that holds on to as much water as it can absorb, as well as fleshy, moisture rich leaves.
The ZZ prefers bright, indirect light, but can grow in low light conditions. The only real environmental concern is to make sure it doesn’t get cold. Keep the temperature above 65ªF and make sure to water it only when the soil is dry, and you’ll enjoy this plant for years to come.
This plant can survive in low light conditions or on bright fluorescent light.
