Locations :Zamias can grow well in medium to low indirect light but not in constant shade/darkness. Place your ZZ plant in your living room or in your office premises where it gets sufficient amount of light or shuffle its placement every other week.
Styling/décor tip :Such is the beauty and appearance of the plant that it is oft mistaken for an artificial one. The beautiful waxy leaves of the ZZ plant reflect sunlight and instantly brighten any room they are kept in.
