The ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) is a tropical plant native to Eastern Africa. It is a member of the Araceae family, which also includes popular indoor plants such as the peace lily and philodendron.
The ZZ plant has glossy, dark green leaves that grow in a graceful, wand-like pattern. The leaves are smooth and waxy, with a slightly thickened, fleshy texture. They can grow up to 3 feet in length, but are typically shorter in indoor settings.
One of the most appealing characteristics of the ZZ plant is its ability to thrive in low-light conditions, making it an ideal plant for those who want a low-maintenance houseplant. It also has a unique ability to store water in its rhizomes (underground stem), which allows it to go long periods without being watered.
