ABOUT OUR ZAMIOCULCAS ZAMIIFOLIA
Hi, I’m Zoe the Zamioculcas Zamiifolia. People usually call me the ZZ plant, it’s much less of a mouthful than my latin name. My dark green glossy leaves will bring tropical vibes right into your space without being high maintenance. I pride myself on being the hardiest houseplant on the market. I first rose to fame in 2000 and since then I’ve been extremely popular amongst first time plant owners and the forgetful waterer. I’m adored in the houseplant world because I can be placed in almost any environment and I will survive.
You can find me in eastern parts of Africa. For a tropical houseplant I’m very laid back. I don’t need high humidity, bright light or warm temperatures to thrive. You can place me in a dark and draughty part of your home or office and forget about me for weeks at a time and I’ll soldier on. I’m the plant for you if you’re in need to add greenery to the shadier parts of your home or office.
I’m the perfect houseplant for anyone starting their first indoor jungle. I’m cool as a cucumber and won’t take up too much of your time.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do I care for a ZZ plant?
Taking care of your ZZ plant is really easy. They like a medium/well lit room but lower lighting will also be fine. Keep Zoe away from any south facing windows where her leaves will burn from the hot sun. The perfect temperature for Zoe is between 15-30°C. She is draft and cold tolerant so she can be placed anywhere in the home. Allow her soil to dry out completely before you water her again. The ZZ plant can go many weeks without water and will forgive the forgetful waterer.
Is the ZZ plant poisonous?
Yes the ZZ plant is very toxic if ingested. It’s important to keep Zoe on a high shelf or bookcase away from any small children or pets.
How often do you water a ZZ plant?
The best way to tell if the ZZ plant needs water is by feeling the first two inches of soil with your finger to see if it is dry. In the winter the ZZ plant will be able to go many weeks without. If you notice any yellow leaves this could be a sign that Zoe has had a bit much to drink.
