The verdict is still out as to whether or not I have a green thumb, but according to my Zanzibar Plant, I can do no wrong. About 6 months ago, I cut two stems from my Zanzibar Plant, (because they looked sad and lopsided), and placed them in an olive oil jar I filled with water. These two CUT stems, are still going strong! Can you believe it?
So, I have decided to dedicate this quick tip to the wonderful Zanzibar, AKA the immortal plant. Here’s a pic of mine in my house:
You can buy this type of plant at Home Depot for fairly cheap. I apologize - I can’t remember the price because it’s been so long … and Zanzibar is still alive! She’s so good to me.
A cool trait about this plant is that sometimes it develops leopard-like spots on the stem.
Here’s a better picture of my minimal arrangement. It’s perfect for a guest bathroom or small table. I put this in the master bath and it feels very spa-like. It’s quite perfect for anyone who may be green-thumb-challenged. Just remember - this plant likes shade. I’ve never put it in full sunlight. Cheers!
