Zamia furfuracea do well in full sun or shade, but not in constant deep shade. The crown of this plant will grow erect in full sun and horizontal in shade.

This plant is easy to care for and grows best in moist, well-drained soil . They are fairly salt- and drought-tolerant, but should be protected from extreme cold.

Water only when the potting mixture is completely dry, pour water till it flows out of the bottom of the pot. It is drought resistant, being a semi-succulent that stores water in its trunk. Do not allow the potting mixture to get too dry, though, or this plant may drop its leaves.

Avoid getting water on the base of the plant or the foliage because it can cause Zamia furfuracea to rot. Water the potting mix only.

Feed twice a year with organic fertilizer


Zamia furfuracea - a small, upright bush with thick leaves that radiate outward from its truck. Cardboard palms are cone-producing bushes with extremely stiff, flat foliage that grow to about three feet tall at their highest. 

It grows very slowly when young, but its growth accelerates after the trunk matures. This fleshy trunk serves as a water reservoir in times of drought. When the plant is young, the fronds appear to rise directly from the ground.
