Re: [Aroid-l] Zamioculcas zamiifolia- Request for growth conditions



The plant is nearly bullet proof. If you grow it in a house it will grow very slowly. In a greenhouse it will grow like mad. Mine was 10 cm tall, in a room with no natural light and rare waterings after a year it looked the same. Moved to the greenhouse fed and watered it, and in a year it was more than a meter tall.


Great plant.

Dear Aroiders:


            A colleague here at the Gardens asks what are the best soil conditions and general care for this species.  We have it in the greenhouse where it thrives but do any of you grow it in your house.  Does it require special care?


            I would appreciate it if anyone has any advise.
