About Cassie

We reckon Cassie can't work out whether she's a fern, a succulent or, the world's oldest plant, a cycad. But, thankfully, she's taken the best from each and created an excellent candidate for a houseplant. Her upright growth, dark-green colouring, distinctive shape and her tolerance of shade make her perfect for any home.


Our Cassies come in three sizes:
Plant height: 20-30cm
Plant height: 50-60cm
Plant Height: 70-80cm

(All plant heights are measured from the base of the pot)

Kept in her current pot, Cassie shouldn't grow much more than 30cm.

Our largest Cassie fits perfectly in our new 30cm plant stand!

Health benefits

Like many indoor plants, she can improve the quality of air in an indoor space. But unlike others, she can also improve human health in these spaces, as it's recently been found that she can remove carcinogens, such as Benzene, that are often found in a home.


Cassie is pretty easy-going, being able to tolerate the occasional drought an even quite deep shade.


Keep her away from direct mid-summer sun and be careful not to overwater her.

Watering and feeding

Zamioculcas are very easy to maintain - give them a good soak once every 15 days approximately in the spring and summer and let her dry out in the autumn and winter. How often you should water Cassie, will always depend on the conditions of your home.Always make sure the first 2 inches of soil are dry before watering. This can take up to a month during the winter time. Apply a balanced liquid feed 3 times a year, during the summer months when you'll most likely see new growth.

Living with pets and children

All parts of this plant are poisonous so keep away from children and pets and wash your hands after you've touched her leaves.
