Cardboard Palm

$75.00

Despite its common name, the Cardboard Palm (Zamia furfuracea) is not a palm tree. Its name comes from its growth habit, which is similar to that of palms. Cardboard palms grow pinnate leaves (a leaf composed of many small leaflets on either side of a stem) much like a palm frond. The leaflets are bright green and oval, and they have a slightly fuzzy feel similar to cardboard. The plant is generally shorter than it is wide, with a thick, partially subterranean trunk.

Plants and pots sold separately.

Bright indirect light. Full sun for at least 6 hours a day is best.

Water sparingly, let soil dry out between watering.

No - This plant is toxic to pets. The seeds are most toxic when ingested by pets and pay cause liver damage. 

These plants are extremely slow-growing and often put out only one new frond each year, with the feather-like foliage growing in a symmetrical ring.
