ZZ Plant – AKA “the unkillable” –  is a must have for any plant collection or beginner plant enthusiast. 

What are they "unkillable"? Because ZZ plants thrive on neglect!  They are a very low maintenance plant, and a great plant to purify the air in any space in your home.

ZZ plants appear lush and modern because they're new to the world of house plants: they've only been harvested in the 90s and weren't around in the days you grandmother had a house full of greenery. 


Did you know...

  • The ZZ plant represents good luck, wealth, steadiness and growth with its slow and steady growth.
  • ZZ plants grow mostly vertically, so they can stay in their pot for awhile. They'll grow 3 - 5 feet in height, and a 10-12” base would be their max.


  • ZZs love bright indirect light.
  • They come from tropical climates, so they love warm moist air.  They can live in low or bright light areas of your home or office. 
  • Drought resistant, they only need water once per month.
