Cardboard Palm plant (Zamia furfuracea) is one of those ancient plants with a lot of character. With airy, spaced leaves and delicate stems, these beauties offer a luscious touch to your home. While these babes are not super winter hardy, in Louisiana they can be grown both indoors and out!
The Cardboard palm plant is actually not a palm at all - it’s a Cycad. These plants have been around since the dinosaurs [how cool is that?!] and form cones at the center of the plant.
The trunk stores up moisture in times of drought, making the Cardboard palm plant super hardy. They require enough moisture to keep the trunk fat and health so don’t let it dry to the point that the trunk and stems get wrinkled or dry.
