What is the plant
The ZZ is a rhizome plant that's a real joy to grow and to have displayed within a home.
Many people mention it's a slow grower, however, one I grew one a few years go that only took about 3 years to grow stems as long as 2ft, which is not that slow.
How quick it grows will depend on how much sun light the plant gets.
The ZZ plant grows similar to tree plants or palms and has stems with many leaves growing from these stems.
The leaves are a fleshy type which are only a couple of inches in length and an inch or so wide.
Some of these stems from the same plant grow straight up and then others arch over, which may encourage you to prune odd looking stems to keep the plant looking full and shaped well.
