An attractive and easy to care for plant with wide, dark green leaves. Its waxy smooth leaves help to reflect light and brighten rooms. It is also an excellent air purifier and studies have shown it is adept at removing toxins from the air. The ZZ is native to eastern Africa, seen from Kenya to north-eastern South Africa.
Neediness: one of the lower maintenance plants and will survive a certain amount of unintentional neglect! If lower leaves turn yellow, simply cut them off from the base of the stem. Great for new plant parents.
Watering: wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering. Avoid over-watering
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms and studies
Rate of growth: slow growing but can eventually reach 2 or 3ft.
Temperature: keep at normal room temperature

♻️It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but we sleep better at night. Head to our delivery page, for the full lowdown.
