Zamia Species

Zamia SpeciesCycad plants in the genus Zamia have different growth habits than other cycad plants. For example, Zamia species usually have subterranean trunks, and the leaves on Zamia plants are considerably larger than their caudexes.

Some Zamia species grow in conditions almost devoid of soil—for instance, Zamia pseudoparasitica, which grows on tree limbs, much like an orchid.

The name Zamia comes from the Greek azaniae, meaning "pine cone."
