Zamia

 

Origin: East Africa.

Light: Bright light, indirect sunlight for best results. It will also tolerate low light. Keep it out of hot, direct sunlight which can burn the leaves.

Water: Allow the top (5cm) of soil to dry out between waterings. Soggy soil will cause root rot. Yellow foliage and soft stems are also a sign of too much water.

Humidity: Average indoor.

Temperature: Average room temperatures (18-24°C).

Soil: Fast-draining soil is best to avoid root rot.

Fertilizer: Feed every (3) months. It's also recommended to feed at the time of watering to avoid fertilizer burn and overwatering.
