12 Jan Zamioculas Zamiifolia
(also known as a ZZ plant)
Is a great plant for anybody who is looking to start collecting houseplants. It is great because ZZ’s are a very forgiving plant. Meaning even the people without “green thumbs” can handle these plants. If you forget to water them from time to time they won’t (usually) die on you unless they were in very high light. These plants actually do better in medium to low light; as long as you let them dry out between waterings as they are from Africa; they are used to the extreme growing conditions.
ZZ’s have waxy, dark green leaves. They range in sizes from 6″ to 14″ containers. So you can find one to fit anywhere in your house or office. The best part about ZZ’s is they are very resistant to pests (mealy bugs, spider-mites and scale). You can look back at my previous post “Tips for Purchasing Plants” about pests on plants.
A ZZ will make a lovely addition to your home or office space and is perfect for anyone who appreciates plants but doesn’t want a high maintenance one.
