Striking to look at and easy to care for, the ZZ plant boasts dark, glossy leaves and a structural shape.

Plant Bio

The ZZ plant is found across Central and East Africa, but was initially discovered in Tanzania in the late 1800s. Dutch growers decided to cultivate the plant in 1996, and since then it’s enjoyed popularity for its beautiful, feather-like leaves and glossy green hue.

Over the years the ZZ plant has adapted to periods of drought and downpour, so it’s one of the hardier houseplants you’ll find. It has special veins that store moisture and nutrients for long periods, meaning it can easily survive spells of accidental neglect. Perfect for budding horticulturists or those prone to forgetting to water their plants…!
