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’ve wanted a zz for a long time! So glad I was able to get a great starter plant from pistils nursery! It’s the perfect size and was shipped so carefully!
Carefully packaged plant, and I was surprised how well-preserved it was from the shipping process! Also included a lovely card explaining how to take care of numerous house plants. Would highly recommend to friends. Had some concerns with my order because one of the stalks was slightly damaged, but response was swift and I was offered a kind response with instructions on how to recover it and even a gift card for my next order! Such a wonderful purchase and will absolutely be ordering again :)
The plant arrived in great shape (not so much for the peperomioides), but no care instructions enclosed. I had to text my mom to get her instructions.
