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

First of all, Pistils Nursery has the best customer service ever. They go the extra mile to make sure their customers are satisfied. They put so much care into packaging up your order. My plant came in perfect shape from the way they packaged it. The plant is doing so well that it even has new leaves growing. I ordered the ZZ, because they are supposed to be easy to maintain. They really are ! Definitely shopping here again. Thank you Pistils!
I love how full this pot is! I have another ZZ plant around the same size, but I lost a few leaves to root rot. If all goes well, I'll put them together to make a fuller pot.
Love it! Looks like a great present for my sister
