Large ZZ Plant
When talking about indestructible plants, we simply cannot overlook the ZZ plant. Their dark green leaves grow in a symmetrical pattern along the main stems, and their new growth is a bright green, contrasting brilliantly against the mature leaves. Additionally, the ZZ plants are succulents in disguise! They keep extra water in their tuberous roots known as rhizomes, so they rarely require a thorough watering.
Also known as the Zanzibar Gem, the ZZ plant originates from east Africa and is tolerant of low light, drought, and dry air – making the ZZ one of the easiest plants to care for. The large ZZ plant comes in a 10” pot, and will flourish in medium to low indirect bright light. Be careful to avoid the direct bright light or else you risk burning the leaves! Be cautious of your pets and young children around ZZ plants: all parts of the plant are poisonous. If chewed or swallowed, symptoms can cause immediate pain or a burning sensation and swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue and throat.
