Plant Bio

Our small ZZ plant for delivery is the ideal choice for inexperienced plant parents. Not only is it adorable, with glossy dark green leaves, it's also one of our most low-maintenance houseplants. It thrives in spots with low levels of light, and can go for weeks without watering. Keep it on your desk in the office or on your bedside table. Did we mention it’s a natural air purifier too?

Roots

Grown in the USA. It is a tropical perennial plant native to eastern Africa, from Kenya south to northeastern South Africa.

Fun Facts

The ZZ plant can produce little white, spathe-type flowers near the base of its stalk, which is almost identical to the flowers of a peace lily.

Dutch nurseries started wide-scale commercial propagation of the plant around 1996.

Stellar experience

I am so pleased that found Lively Root! It is so obvious that they are obsessed with plants and making sure that the their seedlings will find a happy home! This recent order was a gift for my mom, and the communication throughout the process made it so easy to be sure she received the plant and it didn't sit out on her cold front porch all day. She doesn't have a green thumb, so I knew the ZZ plant was a good choice. She reports that the plant arrived in beautiful condition and the email care instructions were appreciated too! Thank you so much!!!

Shiny, Green and Perfect

I've wanted a ZZ plant for the longest time, and I FINALLY got one, and could not be happier. It is the healthiest little ZZ I've ever seen, with shiny, perfect leaves and not a single blemish on it. I can't wait to watch it grow - and honestly, the Lil Bit one was the perfect size! To me, it was as big as what I imagined a "medium" being. You will not be disappointed with this ZZ plant. <3

Beautiful and easy!

I am new to plant care so each addition makes me nervous. This plant arrived well packed and looking like it was fresh out of the garden. Two weeks later it is just as green and vibrant. I will definitely be shopping for more at livelyroot.com
