product of the week: ZZ plant

No green thumb?  Well, no worries.  Me neither. 

 No, seriously. I've killed every house plant I've ever purchased.  There was this one philodendron I had a good run with.  I even named her.  We called her Edna.  Then we moved.  Sadly, Edna did not survive the move. 

I wrote off fancy houseplants until I discovered ZZ plants at our local Ikea a couple of years ago. ZZ stands for Zamioculcas Zamiifolia (try saying that three times fast).

I bought my first close to three years ago. I now have three, and all are still alive and thriving. They're seriously hard to kill. Trust me. I read they can be poisonous to kiddos so I've made sure they are well out of P's reach for now.
There you go.  Go get yourself a ZZ plant. (Last I checked I remember them being healthy and less than $15 at Ikea).

What do you have for us this week.  Link up and tell us :)

I'll be looking into this! My husband complains that I kill everything I plant!

And is that a bottle of Poo Pouri on your window sill?

Like the others, I too kill plants. Not on purpose, I promise. I will definitely make the trip and check these out. How I long for something beautimous to have in my home!
