ZZ Plant Raven

$60

Zamioculcas zamiifolia Raven, aka ZZ Raven, has leaves that emerge bright green and fade to a stunning jet black. The intensity of the leaf colour is quite striking and contrasts beautifully with light-coloured planters. They spring from thick, slightly bulbous stalks, which grow from large, water-storing rhizomes hidden underneath the soil. Just as easy to grow as their more common counterparts.

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in low light, but will grow faster with brighter light. A low light plant can pretty much survive anyplace inside your home as long as you have a window in the room. Remember, low light does not mean no light and plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.

Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.

They are a slow grower, but as long as you don't put them under the sun and don't overwater them, they'll be incredibly low maintenance

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
