Zanzibar Gem is an easily grown houseplant that can withstand dry air. The thick fleshy leaves, especially at the base, store lots of moisture. They act as water reservoir during periods of drought. They are good at absorbing formaldehyde and benzene.

When to Water
Around once every 8 - 10 days, depending on the weather and soil moisture.
Remove some of the pine bark on the soil and stick your finger 2-3cm deep into the soil. If the soil is dry, it is time to water.
How to Water
When you water, you can use 800ml as a testing point for floor plants and 250ml for table plants, evenly pour over the soil (not necessarily to remove the pine bark).
Check the saucer and see if there is any water in it. If yes, water less next time. Gradually, you will learn more about your plants’ demand on water in that environment.
Don’t forget to remove the excessive water in the saucer with a towel, to avoid mosquitoes breeding. (Take a look at insect repellents)
