Plant Features

The Zamioculcas zamiifolia, commonly known as the ZZ Plant, is a popular and hardy houseplant well-loved for its ease of care and striking appearance. This plant features shiny, dark green leaves that grow on sturdy, upright stems, giving it a distinctive and elegant look. The ZZ Plant is particularly noted for its drought tolerance and its ability to thrive in low-light conditions, making it a great choice for spaces that don't receive a lot of natural sunlight.

Caring for a ZZ Plant requires minimal effort, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Overwatering is the most common problem, as it can lead to root rot. Signs of overwatering include yellowing leaves and a mushy base. The plant is drought-tolerant and should only be watered when the soil is completely dry. While the ZZ Plant can tolerate low light, insufficient light over long periods can cause it to become leggy or slow its growth. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. The ZZ Plant is generally pest-resistant, but it's always good practice to periodically check for common houseplant pests.
