Plant Care Guide: Zanzibar Gem

Zanzibar Gem // Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

Rugged and resilient, the Zanzibar Gem (or ZZ Plant) is known to "thrive on neglect". Those thick glossy leaves don't need much to shine, making this the perfect plant pal for busy babes.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
The Zanzibar Gem is a perfect pal for those forgetful waterers. They are extremely good at water-retention and are not a fan of being too wet, so make sure the soil is almost completely dry throughout before watering.
