Learn More About ZZ Plant

Collapsible content

What is the ZZ Plant Known For?

The ZZ Plant is renowned for its stunning, waxy green leaves that flourish with minimal care, making it a favorite amongst both novice and expert gardeners. It’s highly appreciated for its ability to tolerate low light conditions and irregular watering, truly making it a standout in the realm of houseplants.

What Is the History of the ZZ Plant?

Zamioculcas Zamiifolia, the botanical name of the ZZ Plant, has its roots in the arid regions of Eastern Africa. It's a plant that has risen to prominence in home decor relatively recently, becoming widely recognized in the 1990s for its resilience and elegant foliage that complements modern living spaces.

Where Does the ZZ Plant Originate?

The ZZ Plant hails from Eastern Africa, where it thrives in drought-prone areas, a testament to its remarkable drought resistance. Its natural habitat has equipped it to store water within its rhizomes, enabling it to withstand long periods without moisture.

How Do You Care for a ZZ Plant?

The ZZ Plant asks for very little: place it in low to bright indirect light, water it sparingly (allowing the soil to dry out between waterings), and it will grow steadily. Overwatering is the enemy of the ZZ Plant, so it's crucial to ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.

Are ZZ Plant Toxic to Pets?

While the ZZ Plant is an excellent choice for those looking for low-maintenance greenery, it's important to note that it is not safe for pets. All parts of the plant contain calcium oxalate crystals, which can be irritating if ingested by animals, so it’s best to keep it out of reach of curious pets.

    I am very pleased with my first order. They were delivered quickly and were so healthy. I was a little surprised the plants were packaged in such a narrow tall box, but they were so well packed and prepared that no damage could have occurred. The plants are a little pricey compared to other retailers, but I have not seen such healthy plants anywhere I shop. I will definitely order from them again.
