Zamia, a genus of 55 species of cycads (family Zamiaceae), small, stocky, fern-like plants native to tropical and
subtropical America. They have a turniplike, mostly underground stem that in some species reaches 3 metres
(10 feet) or more in height. A starchy food is obtained from the crushed roots and stems of certain species, among them coontie, or comfortroot (Z. integrifolia), found in the southeastern United States and the West Indies.
- Light: Extremely bright light is best for cardboard palms. Direct sunlight will be just fine, especially during the plant’s growing season.
- Water: Though they don’t require too much water, try to keep their soil fairly moist. When in doubt, water sparingly—too much will cause their roots to rot.
- Temperature: These are fairly hardy, though you should keep them out of the extreme cold. They can survive anything from the moderate cold all the way up through tropical heat.
- Soil: Make sure their soil drains well, but other than that they have few soil requirements. A regular potting mix will keep them healthy.
- Fertilizer: Feed twice a year with general palm foods—once in the beginning of the growing season in the spring and once in the beginning of the fall.
