Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFlora, TerraFauna, TerraFirma
Soil Depth: All soil depths with proper drainage.
Lighting: Low to medium, or bright, indirect light.
Humidity & Misting: 40%-100% suggested. Prefers well-drained soil and drying out between mistings/waterings.
Mature Plant Size & Root System: A unique, fairly upright plant with dark green, waxy leaves. Though slow-growing, it can eventually reach a height of 2-3 feet and works best for taller terrariums, or even as a great houseplant!
Each stem sprouts from a bulb-like rhizome that helps the plant store water during times of drought. Root-like rhizomes beyond the bulbs can be small and loose.
Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: It prefers moist, but not consistently wet, soil where it can dry out between waterings. It prefers areas where it can grow taller and upwards. Though it can endure dry and heat spells, it does best with periodic watering and moderate temperatures.
Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: It can be toxic if consumed by humans. It is not commonly consumed by reptiles and amphibians.
Pot Size & Packaging: A single 4" potted ZZ Plant is shipped in the pot wrapped in paper.
