How to care for and grow your Zanzibar Gem?

Vicky's advice, Plant doctor at Léon & George

Location & Brightness

Prefers medium-bright indirect light, but very tolerant of all light levels · View Light Guide

Watering

Approximately 0.25 liter of water once every 2 weeks in spring and summer, every month in winter.

Care tips

For watering, use water at room temperature and whose chlorine has evaporated. Let the soil dry between 2 waterings. Remove the decorative moss beforehand to avoid wetting it. Water in 2 times, spaced about 10 minutes apart, so that the soil absorbs the water well. Clean the foliage once a month with a soft cloth and diluted black soap. Rotate the pot a quarter circle at this time to promote smooth growth. Apply suitable fertilizer once a month from March to September.
