|I have never met a plant that was easier to care for than this one, and its beautiful shiny foliage really stands out in the shade.|
ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)

|Oh yes! I love this plant too! Makes me look like a good gardener all the time! I especially like when it starts to grow new shoots, after doing almost nothing the rest of the year, it suddenly shows a dose of life! It is such a low maintenance plant, never worries me when I have to be away for weeks, it survives very well.|

|I so wish I could plant these outside--How cool would that be? That would mean I'd live somewhere warm in the winter |
They are about the easiest houseplant ever, but they do get huge and impressive. I have two now, with 6+ wing spans!
No offense intended here, but we kind of have a thing for calling plants by the wrong names intentionally around my place. Since joing ATP, the ZZ was christened when my boyfriend was helping to move some plants around and he said "Where do you want this ZuZu plant?"

|What a beautiful plant this one is! When I was still working, I kept one in a large West window, by the time I retired it filled out the window. My boss at the time took over the care, he liked it very much too. I never let it dry out and at one point raised the plant in its pot to expose a bit of the gorgeous fat roots. I wish I still had a picture.|

|Here is a funny picture I just took--new growth is always so cool on this plant!|
is it just me? or does that steer look hungry
