Indoor plants help bring personality, break up spaces and introduce new textures and tones.

At Soto we want to make looking after your plants as easy and enjoyable as possible. The ZZ Plant profile will help you get to know your new plant.


The ZZ plant was first described by German botanist Gustav Lemaire in 1879. It wasn't widely cultivated until the late 20th century when its hardiness and adaptability to low-light conditions became appreciated by indoor plant enthusiasts.

The plant gained popularity as a low-maintenance indoor plant, especially in offices and homes with less-than-ideal light conditions.

ZZ plants are celebrated for their ability to thrive with minimal care, making them an excellent choice for those who want a low-maintenance yet interesting indoor plant.
