Zanzibar gem (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)
Zamioculcas zamiifolia is known as the "iron flower". It comes from Africa and is most frequently found in Tanzania and in Zanzibar. Its thick leaves grow directly from underground rhizoma. Brown-green spots can be seen on the leaf petioles. Zamioculcas is a minimalist succulent, which has very modest requirements.
How to care for the Zanzibar gem?
The origins of the plant obviously influence its preferences. Appropriate temperatures are 20-30°C in the summer and 15-18°C in the winter. Zamioculcas zamiifolia is not a great water lover. If it could select too little or too much water, it would clearly prefer the former. The African guest also does not mind low light. Quite the contrary – it likes semi-shaded and even fully shaded places.
