3 Houseplants for Water Conservationists

2. ZZ Plant

Zamioculcas zamiifolia may seem hard to pronounce, but itís extremely easy to grow. If youíve been in a mall or office, you may have seen these planted in mass and never noticed them. Their structural form is accentuated when grown as a single plant in modern containers like the one Suzanne chose for her plant. However, I like to grow them a little higher in a container to accentuate the caudex the stems emerge from.
