Zamia furfuracea

£30.00

The Zamia furfuracea, commonly known as the Cardboard Palm, Cardboard Plant, or Jamaican Sago, is a slow-growing but rewarding cycad that brings a touch of the prehistoric to your home. This plant’s most striking feature is its crown of long, feathery fronds. These fronds are composed of numerous, stiff, and oppositely arranged leaflets. The leaflets themselves are oblong to oval-shaped, with a slightly fuzzy texture that feels somewhat like cardboard – hence the common name.

The Cardboard Palm is native to the coastal mountains and sandy, limestone sea cliffs of Veracruz, Mexico. It is relatively a low-maintenance plant. Its slow growth makes it a good choice for those who don’t want a fast-growing houseplant. With its interesting texture, sun tolerance, and drought resistance, it can be a wonderful addition to a sunny windowsill.

We use 100% recyclable packaging, using FSC Certified cardboard boxes but if you are happy to have your order packaged in pre-used packaging, please tick this box.
