Zamioculcas Zamiifolia Care Guide
These plants do best in very low light areas so that are the perfect office plant where there is no windows and very little natural light.
If they get too much light you may find that spots start to develop on their leaves. They must never the sun whatever happens as this will burn their leaves.
Only water these plants once they are completely dried out – and then – forget about them for another week.
They can rot very quickly if they have too much water.
The plants are not fuzzy about high or low humitidy areas.
Food is always important for any growing plant. During spring and summer fertilize them once a month with an all round water soluble fertilizer.
However, only water when they are due to be watered.
When repotting – you must ensure that the mix is very light and fluffy and very very draining – so incorporate a lot of coir husks, coir fibre and perlite.
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil.
