More on this plant
Zamioculcas zamiifolia, affectionately called the ZZ plant or Zanzibar Gem, is a tropical plant, native to Zanzibar, Kenya, and Eastern Africa. Having evolved in drier conditions than most other aroids, these plants have evolved rhizomes that store water to help the ZZ plant survive drought in its natural environment.
