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.

Love em!

From the thoughtful package to the carefully tailored ceramics pots, these plants show attention to detail. The nursery pots are chosen to perfectly fit in the decorative pots and the new Scandinavian design allows for excess water to drain easily. My ZZ is already showing new signs of grow and I love how to adds to my interior.

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)
