ZZ Plant - Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

This plant solves three problems: it's virtually indestructible, it thrives on neglect, and it just does not care about its lighting conditions! It's so hard to accidentally kill that, along with snake plants, this plant is the most frequently suggested plant for new plant parents or those who feel they have a "black thumb". In fact, ZZ plants are so resilient to neglectful conditions that many who come across them in public spaces thing "this plant has to be fake, there's no way it would be that healthy there"!

The only way to damage this plant (besides setting it on fire or kicking it down the stairs) is to overwater it, which is basically to say: set it and forget it! It can go multiple months without watering. Just water it once every blue moon when you feel like it's been a while. It doesn't even have to be consistent watering!

Tip: if you're looking for a plant to give a new plant parent as a gift, this is the one for you!
