It's the plant you've been waiting for, the black ZZ plant! This variety is known as "Nova Star" but shares similar coloring to the ZZ Raven plant. A plant with super low maintenance needs. This ZZ plant is a great plant with little commitment, can handle infrequent watering, and bright to low indirect lighting its a perfect air clarifying addition to any room. We love putting this plant in some of our low light north-facing windows or dim bathrooms. She definitely adds to the room when you have it in there.

- Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
