If you know any Pisces in your life, you probably hold them near and dear to your heart because they are some of the greatest comforters of the zodiac. As the twelfth and final constellation of the zodiac, this water sign has absorbed every lesson - including the joys and pains, hopes and fears - learned by all of the other signs. With an unwavering sense of compassion and understanding, they are often very in tune with the needs of those surrounding them. They are the daydreamers and idealists, living each day with a childlike sense of enthusiasm and passion, accepting whatever comes their way. This, along with their go-with-the-flow attitude, matches their selfless and empathic personalities, creating the ultimate sensitive soul.

The Zamioculcas zamiifolia, aka the ZZ Plant, will complement the sensitive nature of Pisces plant parents as they symbolize growth, encouragement and dedication. A Pisces will be able to give them the ideal care since they understand and value the essence of any plant. The ZZ Plant, in particular, is incredibly tolerant and will not put up much fuss, accepting whatever comes its way, just like its owner. Sensitivity towards others can be very draining so a plant that is as low maintenance as a ZZ is will perfectly suit the person who is always giving themselves away to others, only having space in their life for calming tasks.

Native to Eastern Africa, the ZZ Plant became popular worldwide due to its tolerance of a wide range of conditions, including very low water and light needs. To keep your plant happy, place it somewhere where it receives at least a little bit of indirect light and then only water it when the soil is completely dry. The thick, slightly bulbous stalks grow from large, water-storing rhizomes hidden underneath the soil, hence their ability to go for long periods without water. Smooth, naturally shiny, emerald green leaflets develop along each stalk and they can last for years and years as long as the overall plant is cared for properly.

All varieties are slow growers, encouraging us to slow down in our own day-to-day life, but they are all just as easy to care for.
