It´s time to meet this remarkable dark variety!
Zamioculcas Raven is a new addition to the zamioculcas family, it stands out with its black leaves and stunning natural colour progression. Zamioculcas has a tried and tested status as a rugged indoor plant. Strong statement in any space! The shiny, black feathered leaves of Raven remind you of the impressive large bird from which the plant derives its name.
Being so strong, Raven feels equally at home in a modern living room, chaotic student flat or packed open plan office. A real feature plant with few demands. Zamioculcas Raven can also cope with an owner who is a slightly forgetful waterer. If it hasn't had any water for a while it will just rely on the reserves that it stores in its roots and rhizomes!
The natural colour development. A beautiful process to see at home!
Phase 1: Ravens new growth begins in a bright green new shoot. The shoot is know as a feather.
Phase 2: Once the new shoot is completely open, Raven will start its beautiful colour transformation. The colour transformation starts out as bright green and as it ages turns dark to almost black. You see the change begin in the tips of the leaves before spreading.
Phase 3: The leaves darken over a period of around 8 weeks depending on the amount of light it gets. The more light the faster it darkens. Once the leaves turn black they will stay dark until the next new leaf appears.
