Zamioculcas Zamifolia, also called the ZZ plant, was introduced by Dutch nurseries in the late 1990s. Requiring low light, little water and minimal care, this slow-growing plant is often grown indoors.
ZZ plants normally grow to 16 to 28 inches in height but can grow as tall as 3 or 4 feet. They prefer filtered afternoon sun and can burn if placed in direct, hot sunlight. To survive, the plant requires a temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit to 79 degrees Fahrenheit. It only needs to be well watered once a week. Yellowing of leaves indicates overwatering. Leaf cuttings are used for propagation.
