I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

I bought a 150cm Kentia palm and 27-inch container. They were packed so well that it took quite a long time to unpack them, but I was delighted with the result. A very healthy and attractive plant with no damage, and at a competitive price.

I came across Oxy Plants by chance, whilst searching for a Bird of Paradise deal. I've had a minor delay with the order, however John and the Oxy team were very responsive and even sent another plant along - and they look goooorgeous, very healthy! 🥰🌿 Parcels were very well-packed also, no damage to the plants or the white pots (also beautiful and high-quality). I definitely plan on shopping with them in the future and recommend the experience!

Fantastic plant - an Areca Palm - at a fantastic price. Finishes off our bedroom redecoration perfectly. Can’t fault the service we received, next day delivery and the plant is amazing! It can sometimes be a gamble buying plants on line but we were blown away with the plant we received, it’s huge, healthy and beautiful. Definitely had the wow factor and we’d definitely recommend Oxy-Plants!

Love my plant!! I bought a Areca Palm - 140cm and it's perfect. It looks amazing in our bay window and looks exactly how it looks on the website. I've seen some bad reviews on here but my experience has been great. Buying plants online is tricky and this is my first time buying houseplants from Oxy and am very pleased with the service.

I”d ordered two gorgeous pots and some ferns to put in them, sadly one pot arrived split and John, without hesitation, resent a new one. I am delighted with the results and the ease of communication with oxyplants.

How To Care For ZZ Plant

Only water when the soil has completely dried out. This plant can do without water for months (in the right spot). If you notice a weakened grey stem, yellowing leaves and dry, crispy patches on the leaf edges then the plant is under-watered or in a too spot that is too bright (if you are watering).

You can put this plant in almost any spot in the house. Just don’t place it in a cold, drafty spot or an area with too much direct sunlight.

Hailing from Africa, Zamioculcas is fine with low humidity. Just wipe the leaves with a damp cloth from time to time to remove any dust or potential pests and avoid over-misting – or for a simpler solution pop in the shower and rinse down.

This plant likes well-draining soil. You can add extra perlite, wood chippings or coco coir to the potting medium to allow for extra drainage.

You can use houseplant fertiliser at half strength or cactus feed once a month, but it shouldn’t need too much. You’re always better to underfeed rather than overfeed.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

Not prone to pests, but keep an eye out for the common house pests such as mealy bugs, scale, aphids, spider mites and fungus gnats. You can apply neem oil every 2 or 3 weeks too, for general house plant maintenance.

If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Diseases page!

ZZ Plant is easy to propagate by means of division or by taking stem cuttings. Or, simply repot your ZZ plant into a bigger pot every other year.

Wondering how to repot your houseplant? Take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

About ZZ Plant

The ZZ Plant, also known as Zanzibar Gem, is a super easy-care plant. Its long, thick, stems stand tall and strong; with beautiful oval leaves set in deep green.

Originating from Eastern Africa the Zanzibar Gem evolved to survive extended periods of droughts followed by flash floods meaning it’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t want too much fuss when it comes to watering. This is the perfect gift for him and for her!

Zamioculcas are a great gift for any novice indoor gardener due it’s hardy, (almost) unkillable nature. We think this house plant is a particularly great gift for men. If you have a friend or family member who needs a plant for their office, home, or university room, why not treat them to a ZZ plant?

Read our full ZZ Plant Care Guide for those in need of a little guidance, but you really shouldn’t have to worry too much with this houseplant. For further reading, you could check out the RHS’s guide to caring for ZZ Plants here.

Top Care Tips for ZZ Plant

  • Don’t overwater your Zanzibar Gem
  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Allow the soil to dry between watering
