Zamioculcas zamiifolia - Large ZZ Floor Plant


Known for thriving on neglect, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, commonly known as the ZZ Plant, stands out as one of the most popular houseplants on the market today. It is characterized by its thick, glossy green leaves and upright stems. ZZ Plants are virtually indestructible, growing from large rhizomes that resemble potatoes. These rhizomes efficiently store water, allowing the plant to tolerate periods of drought.

Thriving in lower-light environments, the ZZ Plant is an excellent choice for the interior of your home. Some research studies have suggested that the ZZ plant can remove toxins from the air, although more research is needed to fully support this claim. Whether you're new to plants or searching for a thoughtful gift, the ZZ Plant should be at the top of your list due to its super easy-to-grow nature.

The ZZ Plant is also available with exotic black foliage known as the Raven ZZ Plant, showcased here .

Please note that all parts of the ZZ Plant are known to be toxic if ingested, so it's essential to be mindful around your pets!
