Interesting Name for an Unusual Indoor Plant

“ZZ” is simply an abbreviated form of this plant’s tongue-twister scientific name - Zamioculcas zamiifolia. This is the perfect plant for the “forgetful gardener,” because it is so easy to care for. As a gift, you won’t have to wonder if you’re giving a novice gardener a high-maintenance plant. And if you are a novice gardener, you’ll love adding ZZ plant to your houseplant collection!

Same Plant Family, Different Look
You may have other houseplants, such as peace lily (Spathiphyllum spp.), philodendron (Philodendron spp.) and Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema spp.), which are in the same plant family as ZZ plant. But ZZ plant has a unique look among other plants in this family. Glossy leaves are held on multiple upright stems to give this tropical plant a dramatic look.

Tips for Success
If you’ve made unsuccessful attempts at growing houseplants, here’s a checklist of easy-care tips that make growing ZZ plant a snap:

Light. ZZ plant is a perfect plant for low-light conditions where other houseplants struggle. Anywhere there’s a spot that receives indirect or bright light, ZZ plant will be at home. Its leaves are sensitive to direct sun, so place it away from a window where the incoming sunlight is intensified by the glass; otherwise, the leaves may scorch.

Water. This is perhaps the most important tip for growing ZZ plant -- less is best. In its native habitat, ZZ plant is adapted to periods of drought. The stems sprout from an underground rhizome, similar to a potato, which stores water and nutrients. Because of this underground water reservoir, you’ll typically have to water this plant only lightly once a week, or even once every couple of weeks. Keep the soil moderately dry, and water sparingly. Too much water will cause the rhizome to rot.

Fertilizer. Use a water-soluble houseplant fertilizer during periods of active growth, diluted to half-strength.

Design Suggestions
ZZ plant is striking enough to be used as a standalone plant. Its upright form fills in a section of bare wall, or a bare corner of a room. But you can also place it in a grouping of potted plants, using ZZ plant as an upright focal point with shorter potted plants clustered around it to lend a tropical touch to your home.
