Potted: Zanibar Gem

This plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) is indestructible! It’s a relative of the cycad and one of the toughest for an indoor environment, first choice for shopping centres and office foyers. So if you are thinking of a gift for someone who claims they can kill anything (hello uni-student just moved out of home), this could be the plant you need. All that is required is a refresh with water once the potting mix has completely dried out. Feed it just once, in summer, with a controlled release fertiliser.
