Get to Know Me
People also call me the ZZ plant. I'm native to Eastern Africa and the island of Zanzibar. I have long wand-like stems with wide, waxy dark green leaves. My roots are actually rhizomes that can hold water for extended periods of time. I like high humidity, so daily misting is appreciated. I also like to have my soil flooded and allowed to drain once every few months to remove excess fertilizer or chemicals that might build up. Dust my leaves to keep me at my shiny best.
