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.
Zamioculcas zamiifolia is simple to care for, requiring little maintenance. Tolerates low to bright indirect light, and watering when fully dry. A slow grower, this plant will form a dense clump, growing to about 2' tall and 1-2' wide.

I waited awhile after getting my ZZ plant to transplant but as you can see, it has a new sprout and is doing well! This is my 8th plant from Pistil's Nursery and I couldn't be happier with their unique choices. They do such a great job of explaining all steps, from shipping to taking care. Plan on purchasing in the future!
It's healthy, and doing well
Tiny but mighty
I opted for the smaller potted option of the ZZ, mine came with 3 shoots and one leaf in the soil which didn’t propagate (sometimes they’ll grow into another shoot, sometimes not). It came well packaged and is what I was hoping for. Can’t wait to watch it grow!
