Roots

Grown in the USA. It is a tropical perennial plant native to eastern Africa, from Kenya south to northeastern South Africa.

Fun Facts

The ZZ plant can produce little white, spathe-type flowers near the base of its stalk, which is almost identical to the flowers of a peace lily.

Dutch nurseries started wide-scale commercial propagation of the plant around 1996.

Great customer service

I ordered four small ZZ plants for the office, but unfortunately there was a mixup on lively roots' end and they sent a big ZZ top instead. The plant was beautiful, but I was not what I ordered. I reached out and they responded immediately by sending three small zz tops over priority mail. The plants got here the next day looking healthy and fresh and smelling like a just-rained-on garden, I new they had just been picked out.

Pretty good

I ordered several plants (10) as part of 50% off promotion. I think (3 OR 4)of the (10) plants got to cold in transit and will not live. Also, I chose white pots and all but (1) were in great shape. One of the pots must have gotten hit to hard in transit and broke into several pieces. I was bummed to see 35%-40% of the plants aren’t going to live but I guess it is January in Chicago, IL and super cold for this little guys. Would recommend ordering/trying in warmer months! Overall I would give my experience a 7 out of 10!

Hi Cade, thanks so much for your review! I'm very sorry about the other plants and pot. We'll get replacements sent out right away and I'll see to it that the plants are wrapped properly for cold transit and that heat packs are included. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns! - Patrick

Plant Donation to Our High School

Lively Root was kind enough to send us a few plants for a club I have started at our school. It's called GreenHalls, and we implement plants into our school to create a more connected and welcoming environment.
We did have some issues with the shipment, the plants had frozen. And Lively Root was kind enough to send us another donation because the plants previously sent were struggling. We just received the new plants and they are doing very well.
Thank you Lively Root!
