Zanzibar Gem - Zamioculcas zamifolia
The Zanzibar Gem (Zamioculcas zamifolia) is a stunning plant with thick, glossy green leaves. The slogan ‘thrives on neglect,’ couldn’t be more true with these indoor plants. They are virtually un-killable, with a high tolerance to low light conditions and little water.
When indoors, position your Zanzibar Gem in a fairly well lit spot, away from direct sunlight.
Only water your plant occasionally, allowing it to dry out between each water. In winter months, your watering periods can be further apart (once a month is usually enough).
The sap of these plants are toxic, so be careful if you get some on your skin - if you do, wash your hands thoroughly.

They like it bright - so find a corner of your home that receives natural light for long hours of the day. 🌿
Don't leave it in direct sunlight as this can damage the leaves. 🌿

Croton plants have incredible variety and are often grown outdoors in our tropical climate. They can make great indoor plants, however they need the right care as they can be fussy. Get your plant care right, and Crotons will make a great addition to any home.
Croton plants do not like to be moved and can go into shock if they. are, so expect to see some leaves falling off after bringing them home. (Don’t worry!) Avoid moving your plant around as much as possible to avoid this happening regularly.
Crotons benefit from high humidity, so apply regular misting to the plant for best results.
If in a pot of container, only water your plant when the top few centimetres of soil is dry to touch, then soak your plant until water flows out of the bottom of your container.

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)
A long time favourite to all garden enthusiasts, the Peace Lily is a low maintenance and adaptable houseplant. Fun fact, Peace Lily’s are not actually true Lily’s, but rather are a part of the Aracaea family.

Peace Lilys like to be positioned in light, partial shade. If the leaves begin to yellow it means the light is too strong, with brown leaves signifying damage from direct sunlight.
Water your Peace Lily sparingly. The plant will tell you when it needs a drink, as the leaves will begin to droop and sag. Keep the soil moist, and generally water once a week.
Peace Lily’s are poisonous to cats and dogs because the contain calcium oxalate, so if you have a furry friend in the house, be careful to position your Peace Lily out of reach.

Silver Lady Fern
Silver lady fern, or blechnum gibbum, is an attractive, lush fern that reminds you of rainforests and waterfalls.

If your silver lady is becoming to large for your pot, repot in spring as it will grow rapidly in the hotter months.
