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 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.

I’ve named her Zuri ...and she seems to be adapting to my home very well. I have to admit, I was reluctant at the beginning, but have become a huge fan of Leon & George. She’s only been here since Thursday, and she seems to have grown an inch or two since then (today is Sunday)
