How to care for a Zamioculcas (ZZ) Plant
The name Zamioculcas is a combination of two single words. Culcas is the collective name for a different genus of plants. Why this name was used for the Zamioculcas is a bit of a mystery, since there's not really a relationship between these plant groups. The 'Zamio' part probably comes from the Zamia ferns, whose leaves are fairly similar to the Zamioculcas'.
