The Zanzibar Gem is a near indestructible indoor plant. It has long and graceful wandlike stems with lush fleshy leaves, resembling a group of feathers. It is highly adaptable and thrives in a wide range of conditions, great for many home and office environments.
Prefers medium-bright indirect light, but very tolerant of all light levels
Water sparingly, prefers to dry out between waterings
Low maintenance and great for beginners
The Zanzibar Gem is a tropical perennial plant and is an excellent choice for low light environments. Sometimes known as the eternity plant due to its ability to handle long periods of neglect, it’s a perfect blend of an attractive and low maintenance option.
If your plant dies within 45 days of arrival, we will replace it at no cost. Learn more.
Meticulously hand-crafted ceramic cylinders, designed specifically for your plants to thrive. Wood stands are handcrafted from reclaimed wood and finished with natural oil.
Plants remain in their plastic grow containers which are placed inside the waterproof ceramic pots, and slightly elevated on foam blocks.
At Léon & George, we believe the world needs more plants – not just in our homes, but in our forests. To bring our impact full-circle, we plant a tree in a U.S. National Forest for every plant sold.
the zanzibar gem is gorgeous and make my space so much happier looking !

The plant is gorgeous. And, it was hand delivered after the original one went missing in UPS delay land for almost weeks, so that was amazing. The hand delivered one is perfection. The one that was delayed for almost 3 weeks eventually did arrive, but the ceramic pot was broken and the poor plant looked like it had been in a dark room for 3 weeks, very sick. I was so happy to get a replacement so easily!

Love the love you give your plants before they arrived. Happiest plants I’ve seen in a while, giving me high confidence to their success in my office space. Well done end-to-end.

I was looking for a plant, and a fairly indestructible one at that given my tracked record, to finish out the design in our newly updated master bedroom. We went with the large Zanzibar with the dark wood stand, and it is perfect! Really finishes things out. Customer service with Leon & George was also great!

I love a Fiddle Leaf Fig like everyone else on the planet, but needed something a little less sensitive and fickle. Enter the Zanzibar Gem. A description I read somewhere called it “hardy and undemanding” and I was sold. My plant arrived on time (across the country, no less) and the packaging was an engineering marvel. The ZZ plant, pot, and stand are beautiful (though not cheap, I got the big one!) and I’m already thinking what other corner or table top in my home could use a little green. All around great experience!

Great response to my questions by team in a timely manner and the experience from questions, ordering, and through delivery is wonderful! Oh yes, and to add on the plants itself (and I’ve bought quite a few from them) are always beautiful and healthy. They take great care of their plants! Thanks Léon and George team!

Arrived on time, easy to unpack, beautiful, glossy leaves, moist soil with nicely packed peat moss on top
Misty Dawn R. Verified BuyerJanuary 19, 2020
Arrived in perfect condition due in large part to a very clever and effective packing process. On the expensive side but then healthy, pre-potted plants usually are. I highly recommend Leon and George.

Love that it came right to the house with the beautiful container and stand. I have been wanting a live plant for the corner of my family room for some time. Your service and the promise of a “no fail” plant made it easy for me to finally go ahead and do it.
