The Zamioculcas zamiifolia or 'ZZ' plant is drought-tolerant and very low-maintenance, making it perfect for beginners and experts alike. This semi-succulent can typically grow up to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide at a slow to moderate rate, depending on how much light it receives. The ZZ plant produces waxy, glossy, light green leaves from its extended horizontal rhizome shoots in a spiraling pattern.

Shopping with Mental Houseplants has been a wonderful experience!

There was such a large selection it was actually kinda hard for me to decide because there were so many plants that I had been wanting. I ended up going with the Zamioculcas ZZ, Monstera Swiss Cheese, Peperomia Marble, and the Calathea Makoyana. After ordering my plants it was not long at all for them to be processed and shipped. The way they were shipped was quite good, they were wrapped in plastic to keep the soil from escaping the pots and to keep it moist. The plants all looked super good too. I will say, I did have to repot most of them right away because they were slightly rootbound but I was going to do that anyway so it was fine. All and all I love my plants and am very happy with them.
