- Humidity: Zamia palm can tolerate low humidity levels, but it will appreciate occasional misting to provide extra humidity.
- Pruning: Remove yellow or brown leaves as they occur to maintain the plant's appearance. Be careful not to damage the stem or new growth.
- Propagation: Zamia palm can be propagated by division. Separate the offsets from the parent plant and plant them in a separate container.
