My gardening chore today was to re-pot a few Zamioculcas zamiifolia (zz) plants which we propagated on our balcony. We have several young plants growing in one flower pot.ZZ plants are hardy plants, and their green, oval-shaped leaves – which have a waxy, shiny coating, makes them attractive enough to brighten any room, or garden.
ZZ’s are easy to grow, they can be propagated from stem cuttings, or from a single leaf. Most times, when propagating the Zamioculcas zamiifolia (zz) plant, we insert a single leaf in an upright position in moist soil. The soil is kept moist until a new plant begins growing.
The zz plant does not take too long to grow, within a few weeks, the leaf will produce a rhizome, and a new plant will emerge a month or so afterward. Please note that ZZ plants do not require fertilizer.
When growing the Zamioculcas zamiifolia plant, you should bear in mind that it needs less, rather than more water. This plant should only be watered when the soil has dried out. ZZ plants can be grown outdoors and indoors. They grow best in bright to moderate sunlight; and they will also do fine in indirect sunlight, fluorescent light, and in extremely low levels of light. They are the ideal houseplants.The Zamioculcas zamiifolia plant requires very little care; it will only die when it is over watered.
I found this tiny zz plant under the soil.NB . . . When the leaves of a ZZ plant becomes yellow, it means that the plant is either getting too much sunlight, or the plant is getting too much water and its underground rhizome may be rotting.
I had a visitor while gardening today, he just had to come and look.And after planting the zz’s, he also had to come inspect them too. I think he gave me grade ‘A’ for an excellent job.
