Short description

Zamia furfuracea is a cycad native to southeastern Veracruz state in eastern Mexico. Although not a palm tree, its growth habit is superficially similar to a palm; therefore it is commonly known as cardboard palm or cardboard cycad

Cardboard palms grow best in full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. Indoors, place your plant by your brightest window, and be sure to rotate the pot regularly so all parts of the plant get an even amount of light. Otherwise the cardboard palm will start to grow lopsided. 

Only a moderate amount of water is required for cardboard palms. And overwatering can cause the roots to rot. From the spring to fall, water whenever the top inch of soil feels dry. But over the winter, reduce watering by about half of what you watered during the growing season. 

Feed your plant twice a year with a slow-release palm fertilizer. One application should be at the beginning of the spring and the other at the start of autumn.

Toxiicity: Symptoms of toxicity in both people and animals include dehydration, increased thirst, vomiting (possibly with blood), diarrhea, dark stools, jaundice, bruising, paralysis, and liver and kidney failure. Contact a medical professional as soon as possible if you suspect poisoning.
