ZZ Plant ‘Zanzibar Gem’
Latin: Zamioculcas zamiifolia
Light: Your ZZ plant will do best in bright, indirect light but can be tolerant of a wide range of lighting conditions which makes them well-suited to indoor growing.
Water: Thanks to their thick rhizomes, your ZZ plant is extremely drought-tolerant and can handle infrequent watering. In general, ZZ plants should be watered once the soil dries out completely.
ZZ plants are notorious for being low-maintenance, easy-to-care-for houseplants that even gardeners with the blackest of thumbs can keep alive.
ZZ plants have naturally shiny leaves that can begin to look dull over time as dust accumulates. Never clean the leaves of a ZZ plant with a commercial leaf shine as it will clog the pores of the plant. Instead, gently wipe away dust and debris with a damp washcloth to restore its shine.
