The Zamioculcas zamiifolia Black Raven or Black Raven ZZ plant is unique cultivar of the ZZ plant. Meaning, it's nearly identical to the original ZZ plant with the exception of dark black foliage. This semi-succulent typically grows up to 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide at a slow to moderate rate, depending on how much light it receives. The Black Raven ZZ plant produces waxy, glossy, light green leaves that darken to black from its extended horizontal rhizome shoots in a spiraling pattern.
