ZZ Plant: The first time you see the name ZZ plant, you would be curious that how is it possible for the plant to have such an unknown name. In fact, the name is actually inspired by its latin name, Zamioculcas Zamiifolia. As the latin name is really awkward to pronounce, the plant is then simply called ZZ plant.
According to Feng Shui theory, Zamia represents "steady" and "growing". People normally like to place one or two kinds of plants in the office or home and wish for good fortune. The ZZ plant (Fortune Tree) is thought to bring good fortune and luck with its significant thick, textured leaves.
