These plants will allow you to forget to water them for months at a time! The Zanzibar Gem™ prefers to be on the dry side, too much water can result in the leaves turning yellow. The plants have potato-like tubers under the soil which store the water and allows the plant to survive extremely long periods without a drink. Watering once a month is plenty.
