Zanzibar  Gem

The Zanzibar Gem not only looks terrific, he is almost indestructible! Potato-like tubers store water and helps the plant to survive extremely long periods without a drink. He doesn't care if when you forget to water him… in fact he almost prefers it! The Zanzibar Gem really does "thrive on neglect'.

His unique attractive form can be used to great effect to add a splash of green anywhere in the home, even in those dark corners of a room where most plants fail to grow.


Zanzibar is one of the best indoor plants for low-light conditions. 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.


This plant is better kept dry. If you water it too much you may find yellowing leaves.When your the plant is much lighter in weight, simply submerge the entire ball in a bucket of water. Leave it there for about ten minutes until the moss-ball is completely engorged and no longer floats; this way you can be ensured that the water is reaching the roots and with a good soaking your plant will not need watering as often. 

Approximately once every few months, provide added nutrients with a little liquid fertilizer added to the water. This will help maintain a lush, healthy green growth.


Comes with a rustic wooden tripod stand
