The Raven ZZ is a rare variety of Zamioculcas zamiifolia, known for its uniquely black foliage. New growth is lime green and becomes darker in time, then settles into black-colored foliage. One of the easiest plants to grow indoors, it tolerates neglect, drought, and accepts low-light conditions. ZZ plants are very efficient at removing indoor pollutants such as benzene, xylene and toluene.
The ZZ plant is native to eastern Africa, from southern Kenya to northeastern South Africa.
ZZ plants do best in medium bright indirect light. Though these plants prefer moderate light, they are adaptable to low light conditions or under fluorescent lights, such as those in office buildings.
Allow the soil to completely dry between watering. Don’t let your plant sit in water because it can easily cause stem and rhizome rot. It's best to water the ZZ plant less because over-watering can quickly cause root out. Cut back on water during the Fall and winter months.
If you are ever unsure if you should water, don't. ZZ plant can always come back from being a little under watered. Fertilize: Feed once every other month using a weak, balanced fertilizer during the spring and summer only. Cease fertilizing in the fall and winter.
