The Indestructible Houseplant

Hello plant people! Having plants in your home is a lot like having children, except you won't go to jail if they die. I have killed my fair share of plants, underwatering, overwatering, accidentally pouring a liter of liquid fertilizer on one oregano, etc. It's all a part of the learning process though, and nobody starts out with a green thumb. There is one plant however, that is so resilient, that I have dubbed it, "The Indestructible Houseplant". That plant's name is Zamioculcas Zamiifolia(or ZZ if you're not a taxonomist or boring nerd like me). This plant is so indestructible, that while forgetting to water it for 3 months, my coworker's ZZ pulled through. That's why I always recommend it to beginner houseplant owners. Of the hundreds of people who have told me they have killed houseplants, only one has told me they killed a ZZ. I went home broken that day, knowing that someone out there had somehow managed to kill a ZZ... Nonetheless, I hope this helped you in your plant endeavors!
