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

I got my ZZ Tree about a week ago and it’s happy and healthy! Carefully packaged and arrived undamaged and the dirt was still damp....which was amazing. I can’t wait to order more!
Received my ZZ Plant as part of an order which also included several air plants, which I LOVE. Everything was packed very well and arrived in good condition. I especially appreciated that all of the packing material was paper and could be put right into my recycle bin. No plastic peanuts or bubble wrap - hooray! I am already trying to decide on my next order from Pistils - eyeing a beautiful brass mister....
