One of the most architectural houseplants you can find, with dark green, glossy leaflets carried on long upright stems. Its upright habit and slow rate of growth means it doesn't take up too much space and it's also tolerant of a range of positions. Photographed here in extra large Tuscany Pot. Caution for pets.
The ZZ plant enjoys a bright position out of direct sun but will tolerate shade too. Overwatering is the main cause of problems so do allow the surface of the compost to dry out between waterings.
