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

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!
Very happy with the ZZ plant from Pistils Nursery. It was wrapped perfectly and was very healthy on arrival. I appreciated the instructions that came with it as well. This company loves plants! I was treated so nicely, I can say they love their customers too. Thank you!
I received this few days back and it is still doing well. No damage to the plant during shipping, although some of the soil did spill out from the pot. I only watered it once so far and keep it at a rather low light setting. Glad that it's healthy and hoping to see new shoots!
