Description for Cherish Friendship with ZZ Plant
It is widely used as a houseplant. It does have pinnate leaves like a palm tree, but they are rounded and it has a thick tuberous stem.
The evergreen leaflets grow in opposing pairs of up to 12 per a stem. The ZZ plant does produce small flowers at the base of the plant when it's grown in outdoors. The flower is a spathe type with a spadix. It is a low growing plant.
