Zanzibar Gem is a stunner of a plant with thick, glossy green leaves. While these plants can be grown outdoors, it’s most often considered an almost un-killable indoor plant, as it has a resilience to low light areas and lack of water.
Although, a sure way to kill these plants to to over water.
In the wild it survives drought periods by disappearing almost completely and then re-sprouting from its underground, potato-like tubers when the rains eventually come. So, in the unlikely event that your Zanzibar Gem appears to have died, a good drink just might encourage it to start developing new shoots!
Delivery and pickup options available at checkout.
Pot stands at 19cm tall, and is 20cm wide.
Overall height with the plant is roughly 65cm tall.
Thrives in almost any filtered light position, including low light areas. Keep out of direct sun.
The biggest thing to remember with these drought tolerant plants is to not over water. Less is more!
Let the soil completely dry, and leave dry for up to a week between watering. In Winter even less watering is required.
I typically water every fortnight through summer, in winter only every month.
Do not allow plant to sit in pooled water, to avoid rot.
