Rare Breed Raven Plant
(aka Zamioculcas zamiifolia Raven)
I am a native of Kenya, and neighbouring African countries.
I have almost black, rubbery leaves, divided into leaflets like a feather
I grow up to approx 80cm including the pot
I am a very tolerant plant and can withstand both poor and strong sunlight. Overwatering and the cold are the biggest risks to my wellbeing.
I do not flower, but who needs flowers when you look this good!
You may need to dust my leaves occaionally.
I am a slow growing plant, and will need repotting in Spring when it looks like I'm busting the pot. Use a free draining cactus compost.
Please don't overwater me.
You can grow babies from my leaves when they fall off. I am poisonous, so please keep children and pets well away. Wash your hands after handling me.
