Zanzibar Gem (Z Z Plant)

IMG_20160202_224540

Zanzibar Gem, or ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) looks like a Zamia, a cycad, but is really in the skunk cabbage family along with philodendrons, pothos, Chinese evergreen, and so many other wonderful houseplants. Give it bright light (no direct sun) and low water. See page 120 of our newest book, What’s Wrong With My Houseplant.
