I love the ZZ Plant! It’s so shiny & tough as can be.

The 3 reasons why I love this plant are: it tolerates low light, needs infrequent watering & is a stunning addition to any home.

Because the ZZ Plant tolerates low light & dry air, it makes an excellent office plant.

This houseplant really shines – literally! I love the ZZ Plant because it’s gorgeous, tough & so easy to care for. Other names it goes by are Zanzibar Gem, Welcome Plant & its tongue twisting botanic name Zamioculcas zamifolia. Mine just got repotted so I’m sharing that project with you along with tips for keeping your ZZ healthy & looking like its fabulous self.

I’m always interested to know where plants are from and which others are in the same family and/or genus. This shiny beauty shares the same family with these other popular houseplants: pothos, spathiphyllums, agloanemas and diffenbachias. You can find these plants in my book Keep Your Houseplants Alive if you’re new to the wonderful world of indoor plants.

To sum it all up: ignore this plant & it’ll be happy. Of course, shower it with admiration and praise but no babying is needed with this 1. Water your ZZ Plant infrequently, don’t let it sit in water, keep it out of direct sun & never use leaf shine. Sounds like a winner of a houseplant to me!

Yes it’s true, this plant has been used for 1000’s of years & is still favored today. You find it in many homes & gardens & it also goes by many other names as well – Aloe barbadensis, First Aid Plant, True Aloe, African Aloe, Burn Plant and Miracle Plant, to mention a few.

My Aloe veras grow in pots year round outdoors & I hardly do a thing to them in terms of care. They also make fine houseplants (so fine that it’s included in my houseplant care book – see the link below) & are particularly handy to have growing in the kitchen. If you burn yourself that soothing fresh gel contained in the leaves is right there waiting for you. Head’s up because there are 2 important things you need to know to grow them successfully in your home. Hint, hint: they’re listed under the 1st 2 care tips in the post.
