The ZZ Plant, also known as Zamioculcas zamiifolia, is a popular houseplant that is native to Eastern Africa. It thrives in arid and dry climates, making it a great choice for those who may forget to water their plants on a regular basis.
The ZZ Plant has shiny, dark green leaves that are oval in shape and can grow up to 2-3 feet long. The leaves are thick and fleshy, giving them a waxy texture, and they grow in pairs along the stems of the plant. While the ZZ Plant does produce flowers, they are not particularly showy and are often hidden within the foliage.
The ZZ Plant is a great option for small spaces or as a statement piece in larger rooms.
💦 Water: Allow the soil to dry out completely between watering sessions. When watering, make sure to thoroughly saturate the soil, allowing the excess water to drain away. Avoid overwatering as it is susceptible to root rot.
☀️ Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate lower light conditions. We recommend LED Full Spectrum Plant Light Strips, 2 foot
🪴 Potting: Well-draining potting soil mix rich in nutrients. We suggest Potted Elephant Indoor potting mix (50/50 peat moss & pumice)
🌿 Habit: Upright, can reach 2-3 feet tall and wide
