ZZ Plant


Height Medium

Pot Color

ZZ plant (short for zamioculcas) is perfect for every houseplant collection because it is so tolerant of neglect. It is as beautiful as it is easy to grow, with shiny, dark green leaves and a graceful upright shape.

Care Guide

Light Level: Low Light

This plant can get by with very little natural light. Feel free to place it anywhere from on a nightstand to in a bathroom.

Water Level: Not Thirsty

This plant can go several weeks without water. Only water it when the soil dries out completely and be careful not to over-water.

Quick Tips

In extreme drought, ZZ plant will drop its leaflets. Because it stores water in its fleshy tubers, once it gets moisture again, it will put out new growth.
