Simon and a zz plant

My Favorite Plant: ZZ Plant

In Blog, Feature, Houseplants, Winter by Samantha Karsten

We’re starting a new video series starring Jessie and our staff members called My Favorite Plant. Meet our staff and learn about great indoor houseplants, including care tips and styling suggestions. This week, meet Simon and his favorite: Zamioculcas zamiifolia, also called the ZZ plant, Zanzibar gem, or emerald palm. It’s simply one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive, and it’s perfect for that someone in your life who likes plants but maybe forgets to water them for… weeks at a time. The ZZ plant has your back.

Simon is a Facilities Assistant, and you might find him working on the maintenance of the greenhouse, sweeping floors, or telling jokes to staff and customers.
