The benefits of displaying indoor plants in our homes are huge. Plants are a décor tool, moisturiser, therapist, climate improver and detoxifier in a pot. Everybody loves a fresh display of green and healthy plants but there are those among us who have a difficult time with pot plants.
The ZAMIOCULCAS zamiifolia is an indigenous plant, originating from the subtropical forests of the KwaZulu-Natal northern coast. Glossy deep-green leaves, borne on two or three straight, thick stems are attractive and extremely water-wise.
The Zamioculcas can go without water for a couple of weeks at a time – perfect for the forgetful gardener! Contemporary looks and the ability to live in low light conditions make this plant an absolute star. Dust off the glossy leaves monthly to ensure that the Zamioculcas continues to shine.
