It is widely used as a house plant because it bears all conditions of cultivation.
It does have pinnate leaves like a palm tree, but they are rounded and it has a thick tuberous stem.
It satisfies demand of interior plant escapers who always look for new plants they can use indoors to provide a different look.
The evergreen leaflets grow in opposing pairs of up to 12 per stem.
It is a low growing plant. The trunk stores moisture in times of drought, which makes Zamia ideal for periscope gardens.

The leaves are pinnate, 40 to 60 cm long, with 6-8 pairs of leaflets 7 to 15 cm long; they are smooth, shiny, and dark green.
The flowers are produced in a small bright yellow to brown or bronze spadix 5 to 7 cm long, partly hidden among the leaf bases; flowering is from mid summer to early autumn.

Soil: Good well-drained potting soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: Minimum 18 degrees C
Fertilizer: Fertilize with a slow release palm food or a diluted household plant food once monthly during the growing season.

Caring for Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

  • Cardboard palm requires enough moisture to keep the trunk fat and healthy. Never let it dry to the point that the trunk and stem are wrinkled or dry.
  • Prune off dead leaves as they occur.
  • Even though the plant does well in lower light levels, by placing it in brighter light it performs even better.
  • Keep the plant away from any hot direct afternoon sun as the plant can burn. A good bright filtered afternoon sun would work well.
