How not to kill me!
This plant prefers bright indirect light but will tolerate low light levels, it will just grow a bit slower.
Similar to a succulent, the Zanzibar Gem likes to really dry out between waters. So moderate watering during the warm weather, once or twice a month. During the colder months, you can hold off a bit longer. Just check to make sure the soil is dry before watering again. The only way to kill this guy is by overwatering and freezing temperatures.
Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove any build-up of dust as this can block important sunlight from reaching the plant. This will ensure you have a super shiny, happy, healthy plant!
