Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ) Plant PUPS!
These baby ZZ pups are a perfect size for any pot. The zamioculcas zamiifolia is geographically found in some parts of Africa. Normally evergreen, but it will become deciduous with the lack of water over a long period of time. The roots are large and thick, like banana tree roots, that seem to seep out of a potato like rhizome. The roots will push through plastic nursey pots and soft plastic containers. So clay, ceramic, concrete pots or thick solid plastic containers are needed for its final home.
The ZZ plant is probably my favorite and the most easiest plant to grow. We make our own soil with wood shavings, crushed pine chips, #5 sand, little compost, little FoxFarm Happy Frog, extra perlite, extra coco coir and other beneficial ingredients that they looove and thrive in! But cactus soil at home depot will work just fine! These baby zz plants were obviously propagated by myself by a strange leaf propagation method. So most will still have the original mother leaf in the soil with the actual pup. I try to mimic the natural habitat as much as possible and the leaf does have roots. It will eventually rot away as the plant gets bigger but it must have a purpose or something if its still there after some months right?
To be successful in the ZZ plant mother or father ways water your plant once or twice a week depending on light positioning and soil. Eeeeeeeeveryone is concerned about fertilizing. This plant or like any other house plant needs very little or no fertilizer. We let the compost and the goodness in the soil run out of nutrients, which we wait a good 5 or 6 months. And we add A PINCH of 13-13-13 NPK fertilizer every 3 months.
We do spray all of our house plants, fruit and veggie seedlings, outdoor foliage plants with my own concoction of organic ingredients as a pesticide. And occasionally a spray of Monterey B.t. in spring and summer time! So if your box smells...
