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. Other names include cardboard plant, cardboard sago, Jamaican sago, and Mexican cycad.
Keep the plant dry for few days in between watering. It needs a good drainage pot mix so that the excess water can easily drain out and saves the plant from root rot. In order to keep the leaves clean wipe them with a damp cloth whenever required. It grows well under bright indirect sunlight.
