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 Story

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.

Customer reviews for the Zanzibar Gem

Plants looks great and exactly what I had wanted

5 out of 5 stars

When one plant ended up damaged upon receipt, L&G replaced immediately and without any fuss or muss. They also make sure to ship the replacement at a time when it minimized the opportunity for winter and UPS to hurt it. Love the customer service

The lovely plant arrived in pristine condition. The packaging was a bit time consuming, but not difficult. Fair trade for caring for the plant. I expect to order more.
