Zamioculcas Zamiifolia or the ZZ plant is a very easy-going houseplant that is forgiving if you forget to water, tolerates low light and rarely needs to be fertilized. The perfect houseplant. The Zamioculcas Zamiifolia has thick, upright stems bearing narrow, dark-green glossy leaves. A slow-grower indoors, the ZZ plant rarely needs repotting. ZZ plants are gorgeous, tough and easy to care for, and enjoy plucking the toxins out from the air - frankly what's not to love!
The ZZ plant will look great in any room, it gives that magazine cover style to give added interest to an empty corner in your house. Really bringing the rainforest feel, it is relaxing to look at and easy to care for.
Originating in central Africa, Zamioculcas, or the ZZ plant is very well adapted to coping with drought and it will tolerate neglect - so if you tend to forget to water plants then this one will forgive you - at least for a while!
