Native to eastern and southern Africa, Zamioculcas zamiifolia, commonly known as ZZ plant is an aroid belonging to the Araceae family. ZZ’s are slow-growing and hardly surpasses a height of three feet at maturity so they wouldn’t require a bigger moss ball in a long time or ever. When developing, the ZZ’s foliage forms a beautiful green rosette.
Zamioculcas plants are highly rugged, resistant to pests and thrive with minimal care. They feature relatively broad and stunning dark green leaves which make them great kokedama wonders for offices and business environments. A significant attractive property of the ZZ plant is its smooth, glossy leaves which have a striking symmetry. The leaves are reflective and add brightness to any space. The shape of the zamia plant can be described as somewhat between that of a fern and a palm tree.
Although they have been around for ages and very popular, zamia plants are unconventional kokedama gardening wonders.
- Other names: Zanzibar gem, eternity plant, Zuzu plant, emerald palm and aroid palm
- Planting environment: Commonly grown indoors. If you like to place it outdoor, keep the plant away from direct sunlight.
- Sunlight: Develops well under lower to medium light exposure.
- Watering/Soaking: ZZ is a low- water plant. Allow the moss ball to dry slightly (up to two inches) before soaking. Soak the moss ball 3/4th in water for 5 minutes once in three weeks.
- Misting: Practice infrequent misting to avoid keeping the soil wet for too long which may cause the rhizomes to rot.
- Fertilisation: Fertilise once a month during the growth period. Otherwise, feed once in three months with half the recommended dosage of fertiliser.
- Temperature: Requires warm temperatures to grow well. Avoid placing in temperature below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperature between 65 to 75 degree Fahrenheit is perfect.
- Humidity: Thrives under a wide range of humidity level.

I always wanted indoor plants but was not sure about their care. So when I saw the stunning kokedama pictures I was completely sold. I wanted easy to care plants and Keerthi helped me in choosing them.
I bought a Syngonium , a Dracena, a ZZ, an Aralia, and a pink rubber plant. It has been a couple of months and all of them are doing great.
Keerthi always promptly responds to all questions regarding plant care.
I would highly recommend buying her plants . It has “Elevated My Space”
I bought this Zz kokedama plant from Keerthi in the third week of October. The plant is doing extremely good and am very happy. This is my first indoor plant and had lot of queries before purchasing it. Keerthi helped me with all my queries and has been on regular follow up since purchase. The maintenance of this plant is very minimal and is adding beauty to my living area. I am definitely planning to add few more of it .Thanks to Keerthi.
As Covid times forced all of us to remain indoors and mostly work from home, was looking to add few indoor plants at home to both improve the decor and to improve the air quality indoors. As a novice in gardening, I wanted to go for the one with least maintenance, yet providing the comfort of having a little garden at home. Came across the Kokedama plants and was convinced these were the ideal plants for me.. aesthetically designed by Keerthi, easy to maintain, constant guidance from Keerthi to check on the plants ensured that the plants are all as healthy and as beautiful as when we picked the plants from Keerthi. Have been a very happy (and repeat) customer from last 4 months or so and looking forward to add more Kokedamas to our little garden at home ! Thanks Keerthi !

I had been wanting to buy a kokedama plant to enhance the aesthetics of our living room ever since I first learnt about them. Keerthi assessed my requirements and interests and suggested this ZZ kokedama plant. The plant not just adds to the aesthetics of our living room, but also enhances the air quality and uplifts the mood. I am glad about this suggestion from Keerthi since it’s maintenance is very easy and minimal. Its been about a month now and I am thoroughly enjoying it. Keerthi has been very helpful and professional all through – right from assessing the requirements, to suggesting an appropriate plant, to delivering it on time, to proactively handling post delivery queries about maintenance and so on. Would look forward to buying more kokedamas from her.
I love ZZ plant.. The only serving plant in my garden…so far. Now u can guess how low maintenance this plant is. I feel really happy seeing this lush green plant inside my home.
Amazing product. Packing done very well. Just loved it !
