Care Guide

Zanzibar Gems hold water in their root sacs, so they need to be watered only sparingly. Avoid overwatering, and don't be alarmed if two weeks or more go by without the need to water.

These pieces reflect the essence of Scandinavian design—minimalist, functional, yet warm. Designed with form and function in mind, they are perfectly sized, water sealed, surface safe, and crafted from non-toxic materials.

Terrific packing!

You did a wonderful job of packing plant for shipment. Once I removed packing I found a very healthy plant in a nice planter. This is the first plant I have ordered from you and there will be others in the future. Thanks!

Beautiful Healthy Plant and Great Service

I wanted to order a large plant for a corner in my living room. I sent a picture of the area and asked for their suggestion. I quickly received a lovely response and suggestion. I was a bit worried what condition it would arrive in since I live on the east coast. It arrived in beautiful condition and so well packaged. I've since ordered 4 more of their small/medium size plants. I think I may have a small addiction!
