I'm destined for the desert, so keep my environment dry and mist free to keep me happy.


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


I don't need much water. If my soil is dry I'm thirsty and it's time to water me!

Top tip

Don't repot your ZZ Plant too often, it loves to be root bound. Give it an extra few months before you move it up a pot size to avoid a sad ZZ.

About Lil' ZZ Plant

If you are looking for an easy life when it comes to owning a plant, then look no further than the Lil' ZZ Plant. This plant is renowned for being one of the easiest plants to look after, with an extremely low-maintenance routine, making it perfect for first-time plant parents. The Zanzibar Gem, or Zamioculcas Zamiifolia when it's been naughty (which is highly unlikely - this Lil' Prick is as good as gold!), can handle most lighting conditions but leans on the side of bright, indirect sunlight if it's being spoilt. This plant's roots (ey, see what we did there) are of African descent, so it's happy in drier conditions and only requires infrequent watering, or when its soil's dried out.

The Lil' ZZ Plant is quite happy in most internal temperatures and will merrily continue to thrive anywhere between 15-24°C. These temperatures tend to make this plant a perfect companion for most rooms in the house. However, the Zanzibar Gem does have one dislike, humidity, so make sure you lay down your mister and avoid placing your Lil' ZZ in kitchens and bathrooms.
