ZZ plant, with its wide, attractive, dark green leaves, boasts many favorable traits for offices and homes. ZZ plant tolerates neglect, is drought tolerant, and accepts low-light conditions. Its waxy, smooth leaves are deep green and shiny. Grows slowly to a height and width of two to three feet and makes a beautiful specimen that won’t outgrow containers quickly.
ZZ plant is also an air purifier and in a NASA study, researchers found it is specifically adept at removing copious amounts of toxins such as xylene, toluene, and benzene from the air.
ZZ’s only major drawback is that all parts of the plant are poisonous to animals.
