ZZ PLANT PROFILE
Tough and striking, forgiving if not fed and watered and takes the shade(s) over bright sunshine. Did they name the band after this plant? Who knows, but one thing's for sure: this awesome Zanzibar feathery wonder rocks and she's primed to give you all her loving! Ideal For Beginners.
Native to Eastern Africa.
Positioning + Light Needs
Shade tolerant, most happy anywhere with moderate light. Golden rule is to avoid direct sunlight. Houseplant 101: shade tolerant does not include pitifully dark corners!
Only water when first couple of inches of soil are dry to the touch. Only needs monthly watering during Winter months.
No misting at all please, I enjoy low humidity.
Feed me once a month every Spring and Summer with liquid fertiliser.
When roots fill all the nursery pot. Signs: If your main aloe plant is starting to look a little droopy but is surrounded by smaller pups, it's definitely time to re-pot.
Child / Pet Friendly
No, all parts toxic.
Yep! I'm very effective at removing airborne toxins such as xylene, toluene, and benzene from the air.
Look out for
Yellowing leaves: usually due to overwatering. Check the roots and possibly re-pot.
