Zamioculcas zamiifolia - ZZ Plant
When it comes to low-maintenance houseplants, Zamioculcas zamiifolia is the gold standard. More commonly known by its nicknames ZZ Plant and Zanzibar Gem, this waxy-leafed tropical is native to drought-prone eastern Africa. As such, the ZZ Plant has thick succulent roots, allowing the plant to withstand up to four months without water. The result is a houseplant that is both beautiful and bulletproof, a perfect choice for beginners and spaces without much natural light.
• Light: Low to bright, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when soil has nearly dried out
• Considerations: ZZ plants have succulent, tuberous roots. Take care not to over-water

Plant arrived packaged well and as expected. I would purchase again!
Ordered several species to be delivered to KY. Was apprehensive given the shipping length and that most were in small pots (4”—I was worried about young starters that weren’t established yet). Pleasantly surprised in both regards. Plants looked amazing out of the box, and are doing well after a week or so. And all were well-established despite the small sizes. Wonderful to have a nursery with species/variety level identifications, and one willing to ship cross-country.
my sister was delighted with her new bathroom plant. she sent me a photo and it looked great. i looked for a nursery near her to insure a healthy arrival and am so happy to have discovered Pistils!
