Re: Zamioculcas

I have grown it in a greehouse in fairly low light levels and found it to
burn in high light. My potting mix was Pro-Mix BX but I'm sure any highly
organic peat based mix will do. Keep in evenly moist and never let it dry out.
 If a leaflet breaks off it has a strange propagation biology. You can plant
the leaflet. It will root and make a tuber-like swelling at the base which
eventually puts out a new shoot.
