Zamia // furfuracea

Commonly known as: Cardboard Palm

The cardboard palm is not actually a palm at all, but a cycad. Its misleading nickname is probably from the plant's similar growth pattern to a palm. This shrub-like plant is a semi-succulent that holds water in its thick trunk and has leaves that actually have a fuzzy cardboard texture!

They prefer bright rooms and can handle direct sun. 

Water
Water thoroughly when the top layer of soil feels dry. Keep the bulbs connecting the stems slightly above the soil.

Care level
