Perhaps the easiest of easy-care houseplants! This plant is as tough as its name is to pronounce, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, which has thankfully been shortened to simply ZZ. It's native to the harsh climate of eastern Africa, where rainfall is scarce and unpredictable, so it's a perfect choice for beginner houseplant growers. But even the most experienced growers will appreciate the plant's striking upright stems with ladders of leathery, emerald green leaves. The 6" ceramic cachepot's decorative surface enhances the plant's geometric shape. Note: Keep away from children and pets.
