It features thick, dark green leaves and a slow-growing nature. It is grown and shipped fresh from our farm direct to your front door.

  • Can grow more than 5 feet tall and wide over time.

Zamioculcas zamiifolia

Native to areas of Africa, ZZ plant is an incredibly durable houseplant that can go weeks without water if it needs to. It stores moisture both in its thick leaves and potato-like tubers. It’s related to many other popular houseplants in the aroid family, including pothos, philodendron, monstera, and aglaonema. If you’re looking for a more stylish version of ZZ plant, the variety Raven® may be for you. Instead of dark green leaves, it features dark, purple-black foliage that opens up a contrasting lime green color.
